We talk with Dr Roger Mysliwiec, a specialist in psychosomatic medicine and eating disorders, about the biology of anorexia nervosa.



Today we talk with Dr Roger Mysliwiec who was trained in Germany as a medical doctor before qualifying as a specialist in Psychosomatic and Psychotherapeutic Medicine. Since 1996 he has been working in New Zealand, firstly in the public sector and now in his private practice clinic.

Roger has over 25 years of experience working with eating disorders and is considered one of New Zealand’s leading experts in the treatment of eating disorders. He has played a significant role in the development and expansion of eating disorders services in the Auckland Region. In recent years Roger has developed a strong interest in the application of neurobiological findings to the theory and practice of psychotherapy in general and in particular with eating disorders. He is an accredited Clinical Neuropsychotherapist and supervisor of the  International Association of Clinical Neuropsychotherapy (IACN).

We caught up with Roger and talked about the biology of anorexia nervosa in what we hope will be a series of interviews we do with him on eating disorders and how neuroscience is informing this aspect of clinical practice.
