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 manhattan, brooklyn, westchester and long island. 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.
Dr. Judith Brisman will be presenting:

In addition to our ongoing Groups and Individual Therapy, EDRC offers a support group on the first Monday of every month.
WHO? This group is appropriate for anyone (18+) who feels that they are struggling with eating or body image issues. All genders, shapes, and sizes welcome. Please note that due to limited space, only people with ED and Body Image issues are able to rsvp.
WHAT? This is an open support group. Group members are encouraged to share and to provide feedback to one another. This group is not a replacement for individual or group therapy.
HOW? Please RSVP to email@example.com in advance, and then just show up. You do not need to bring anything.
NOT SURE? First time? Had bad experiences in groups before? It’s understandable that you might be apprehensive about coming. However, it’s non-committal, so why not give it a try?
