Research

Our team has been at the forefront of developing effective treatments for eating disorders. Dr. Le Grange co-wrote the manual for family-based treatment for anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, and he has been a principal investigator in treatment trials for adolescents with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. In addition, Drs. Garber and Buckelew are leaders in examining effective refeeding protocols for adolescents with anorexia nervosa during inpatient hospitalizations. Dr. Accurso brings a unique background in children’s mental health services to the treatment of eating disorders; her research seeks to improve the quality of care for youth with eating disorders in the community.
