Riccardo Dalle Grave
Riccardo Dalle Grave, MD, is Director of the Department of Eating and Weight Disorders at Villa Garda Hospital, Verona (Italy). His research within this department has addressed many aspects of eating disorders and obesity, including their diagnosis, maintenance mechanisms, assessment and treatment, and in collaboration with Professor Christopher G. Fairburn he has developed an original inpatient treatment for eating disorders based entirely on enhanced cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT-E), as well as an adaptation of CBT-E for adolescents with eating disorders. Dr. Dalle Grave has a particular interest in assessing the effectiveness of CBT-E in adolescent patients with eating disorders who are significantly underweight in both outpatient and inpatient settings. He is editor of the CBT-E website, and Director of the Italian Advanced Training Course on the Treatment and Prevention of Eating Disorders and Obesity, which trains clinicians in cognitive behaviour therapy for eating disorders and obesity. He also provides expert CBT-E supervision for clinical services in Europe, the USA, Australia, and the Middle East. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Eating Disorders and a member of the editorial boards of several journals on eating disorders.
