Currently Seeking Licensed Therapists


Welcome to EDRC in New York City

The Eating Disorder Resource Center was the first outpatient program to develop specialized treatment for women and men who were suffering from bulimia.We now treat a wide range of eating disorders, offering individual, group, family and couples treatment for those challenged by bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia and other kinds of body dysmorphia. EDRC is especially known for integrating a psychological understanding of the disordered eating with direct intervention regarding the food or weight related behaviors.

EDRC is based in the west 50’s in Manhattan. However patients can be seen by therapists in locations throughout the city. We also have a large network of referral sources — such as physicians, psychiatrists, nutritionists and gynecologists — so that all concerns can best be addressed.

With over 30 years of experience, we are keenly aware of the latest research and clinical understandings of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorders. We are dedicated to knowing what can best help when you or someone you know is in trouble with food.

The 24th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference

Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond:
The “Practice” of Practice

Dr. Judith Brisman will be presenting with Dr.Roger McFillin:
CBT and Psychodynamic Treatment: Can we put down our Swords?

Renfrew FoundationEffective treatment of eating disorders is both an art and a science. Yet there remains a gap between what research offers and what clients require. Clinicians are caught in a murky middle, making one critical decision after another – while continually managing their innermost feelings and fears. They must integrate their acquired wisdom and lived experience with the best evidence based care, knowing that neither alone may be sufficient. The “Practice” of Practice explores how eating disorder clinicians actually “mind the gap,” incorporating new approaches and research findings – all as they respond in real times, with real lives, in their offices each day.

Location: Philadelphia Airport Marriott

How To Help A Friend Who Has An Eating Disorder

Take a look at what Dr. Brisman had to say in the Huffington Post about helping friends in trouble:

How to help a friend with an eating disorderWhen you see a close friend or loved one struggling with an eating disorder, the obvious impulse is to help.

And disordered eating behavior can be deadly—not only are there more deaths from eating disorders than any other mental illness, but they can also cause heart failure, electrolyte imbalances and gastric ruptures. Being armed with this knowledge is one thing, but when you hear your roommate throwing up after meals, or notice that a friend is over-exercising or making drastic dietary changes, what can you actually do about it?
