Original Research: Impact of Integrative Therapies Participation on Eating Disorder Treatment Outcomes (preliminary results)

This investigation team, along with co-investigator Jennifer Muehlenkam at University of Wisconsin Eau-Claire, is conducting an original research program looking at the impact of participation in integative therapies such as art, yoga, and biofeedback, on the treatment outcomes in an inpatient ED population. This presentation will describe the importance of the work, the methodology used, and preliminary results of the study. This is a novel area of investigation and an important doorway for creating evidence-based standards of care for integrative therapies in the ED world.
