    Two psychoanalysts with a background in eating disorders, Marilyn Lawrence and Bryan Lask, will explore the personal and societal aspects of obesity and anorexia nervosa at the event, which will take place at the Institute’s premises in Maida Vale. In a talk entitled ‘The Obesity Epidemic’, psychoanalyst Marilyn Lawrence will discuss this multi-faceted issue, attempting to make links between the personal and political, the social and psychological. Following this, Bryan Lask will talk about anorexia nervosa in a lecture entitled ‘Anorexia Nervosa: How can we explain it and how should we treat it?’ He will present a fully comprehensive and integrative model to explain the pathogenesis and maintenance of anorexia nervosa.
