Debra L. Safer, M.D., Co-Director of the Stanford Adult Eating and Weight Disorders Clinic, obtained her MD from the University of California, San Francisco. She completed residency as well as a post-doctoral fellowship in eating disorder intervention research within the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. She was awarded a K-23 (Career Development Award) to conduct a clinical trial involving Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as adapted for binge eating disorder (BED). Her clinical interests include working with patients with eating disorders and obesity, and she has been trained in evidence-based treatments such as CBT for BN/BED, DBT for BN/BED, Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT) for chronic anorexia, and Family Based Therapy for adolescents with AN. In addition to her research focusing on clinical intervention trials for patients with eating disorders, other research interests include designing interventions for post-bariatric surgery patients and using computer assisted therapies (CAT) to increase the dissemination of evidence-based treatments for eating disorders.
