Lappalainen and Tuomisto's 2005 article hypothesizes clinical applications of a functional behavior analysis of patients with anorexia nervosa.  Reading the 12 page article and answering 10 questions with 100% accuracy will give the analyst insight into new techniques for overcoming these obstacles and implementing functional analyses and treatment.  

Participants will be able to describe six behavioral processes present in patients with anorexia, discuss clinical applications for each process/principle and review the premise of the Functional Analytic Clinical Case Model.
