Psicologia clinicadell'obesità in età geriatrica Eating disorders (in particular those disorders that are correlated with a condition of obesity) are becoming more significant in elderly population too. This could represent a new challenge in the field of Clinical Psychology, both as regards the investigation and the study of the phenomenon, both as regards the clinical aspects and the need to develop effective and efficient diagnostic protocols and therapeutic treatments to support elderly persons. The experience of the clinical lab of the Istituto Auxologico Italiano IRCCS is reported using the results of a observational study that involved 180 patients with obesity (more than 64 years old) in the San Giuseppe hospital, an Italian centre of excellence in the treatment of eating disorders and obesity.
