Gratitude inscribed into a Pebble

November 14 – 16: The 24th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference, “Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: The ‘Practice’ of Practice.” ONE MONTH LEFT TO REGISTER.  Location: Philadelphia Airport Marriott.  Effective treatment of eating disorders is both an art and a science. Yet there remains a daunting gap between what research offers and what clients require. Clinicians are caught in a murky middle – treating these most deadly psychiatric diagnoses, making one critical decision after another – while continually managing their innermost feelings and fears. They must integrate their acquired wisdom and lived experience with the best evidence based care, knowing that neither alone is likely to be sufficient.  The “Practice” of Practice offers an opportunity to explore how eating disorder clinicians actually “mind the gap,” incorporating new approaches and research findings – all as they respond in real time, with real lives, in their offices each day. For more information or to register please visit www.renfrewconference.com or contact Debbie Lucker at (877) 367-3383 or dlucker@renfrewcenter.com More information  (Pro)

I am very interested in attending the conference in San Antonio Texas October 2014. I am unable to find specific information. I’d like to plan advance and use timeshare, thus looking for more conference details. Thank you.

Hi Dr. Homrich,

Thank you for your question. The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) conference in San Antonio will be an excellent conference. We attend this conference each year and find it to be very helpful for both eating disorder treatment providers and sufferers. I hope we see you there! Here is further info on the NEDA Conference. :)
