Susan McClanahan, PhD, CEDS

Dr. Susan F. McClanahan is a licensed clinical psychologist, the Chief Clinical Development Officer of Eating Recovery Center and the Founder of Insight Behavioral Health Centers, an accredited clinical center with a commitment to leadership, teaching, training, research and advocacy. Having specialized in the treatment for anorexia and bulimia, well as treatment for binge eating disorder for over 20 years, Dr. McClanahan is a leading expert in the field. Additionally, she frequently works with clients struggling with depressive and anxiety disorders and has expertise in the psychological aspects of pregnancy and infertility.

Dr. McClanahan is active on the boards of several professional organizations, including iaedp, where she is the past-Secretary for the Heartland Alliance Chapter. She is a Board Member on the Residential Eating Disorders Consortium and is a founding member of the Medical and Scientific Advisory Board for the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders. Dr. McClanahan is also a part of the Executive Board of Eating Recovery Center, where she helps to drive decisions related to growth and expansion of clinical services. Specific to her leadership contribution to iaedp, Dr. McClanahan is an Approved Supervisor, providing ongoing mentorship and supervision to one of her top clinical staff who also holds a leadership position within iaedp: Anne Kubal, Insight’s Director of Clinical Training.

Dr. McClanahan holds an Assistant Professor position at both Rush Medical Center and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. She coordinates and supervises the training of medical and psychiatry residents and post-doctoral fellows and interns. Under her direction, Insight has developed a large and well-regarded training program and last year became a clinical training site for Northwestern University interns. Additionally, Dr. McClanahan’s expertise is sought out for local and national presentations. Recently, she was invited to speak on panels at the annual Academy for Eating Disorders’ ICED conference and at the Eating Recovery Center Foundation Eating Disorders conference. In 2014, she was invited to join an elite group of female businesswomen to participate in the Women’s Business Symposia in Chicago.

Dr. McClanahan has designed and implemented a study at Insight’s residential treatment centers in Illinois to elucidate factors that predict positive responses to treatment, including therapeutic alliance, motivation, DBT skills acquisition and ERP engagement to outcomes. The results of this study have important implications for the design and implementation of residential treatment services at Insight and elsewhere in the field. Additionally, Dr. McClanahan recently spearheaded a research collaboration with Dr. Daniel Le Grange examining the inclusion of DBT in certain cases of FBT in order to improve treatment outcomes.

Dr. McClanahan has also proven to be an advocate for mental health treatment and Chicago eating disorder treatment in particular. In 2010 she raised local awareness of discrepancies in an insurance company’s interpretation of parity laws and was instrumental in making changes on a state level to ensure proper care for Illinois residents.
