Treating our Teens (Medical Complications in Eating Disorder Clients)  - with UCLA Pediatrician Elaine Rosen, MD

Dr. Elaine Levenson Rosen has been a board-certified pediatrician since 1993. A native of Houston, Texas, she received her BA from Rice University, medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine, and attended University of Texas School of Public Health prior to moving to Los Angeles. She completed her Pediatric Residency at UCLA School of Medicine

Dr. Rosen began her career as a general pediatrician in private practice, and later transitioned to a specialty focus in weight management and eating disorders. Drawn to working with adolescents, she has long recognized that body, mind and spirit are inextricably linked—and that all components must be addressed to identify and address the root cause of illness.  

She joined the faculty of UCLA's department of Pediatrics, Division of Adolescent Medicine in March 2017 to develop and run two new eating disorder programs through the Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine program.  1) Nourish for Life provides multi-disciplinary assessment and treatment for patients with all forms of eating disorders via an outpatient level of care.  2) The Medical Stabilization Program at UCLA Santa Monica Hospital provides inpatient medical treatment for those who meet criteria of medical instability, and prepares them for their next phase of treatment.  Both programs fill much needed voids within the community.  

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe a case example of a patient appropriate for the Medical Stabilization level of care in the treatment of Eating Disorders
  • List 3 principles of Family Based Therapy (FBT)  
  • Discuss alternative treatment modalities for adolescents when FBT is contraindicated
