Diagnosing and Treating Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder


Nine years after DSM-5, Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) is still settling into clinical practice. In this podcast, Mara and I will help sort out the differential diagnosis between ARFID, anorexia, and other conditions and plan treatment in the context of comorbid conditions, such as anxiety disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr. Jennifer J. Thomas joins us today to help us unpack this topic. She is an associate Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. She is also the co-director of the Eating Disorders Clinical and Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital and the associate editor for the International Journal of Eating Disorders.
