June 5:  Join The Renfrew Center Foundation for: Integrating Brain, Body and the Therapeutic Relationship, – Tarrytown, NY. Presented by: Adrienne Ressler, LMSW, CEDS, Fiaedp & Margo Maine, PhD.  Details: Full-day advanced training that addresses core issues in the treatment of eating disorders. Each 6 CE credit seminar is from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM and includes breakfast and a networking lunch.  Details: Many patients with eating disorders suffer from co-morbid conditions, warranting complex treatments which incorporate the best that art and science have to offer. This workshop weaves together the most current research, treatment trends and clinical insight, empowering clinicians with the knowledge and perspective necessary to effectively treat eating disorders. Conceptualizing eating disorders as biopsychosocial phenomena puts to rest the validity of any dichotomy between the biology and the psychology of lived experience. Plato’s philosophical stance that “the cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole” underscores an emerging treatment paradigm blending holistic approaches with traditional practices to produce a “whole” that is greater than the sum of its parts and, thus, a more potent and creative treatment process. Strategies culled from body-oriented therapies will be explored through film clips, demonstration and experiential exercises, small group discussion and videotaped material from clinical sessions. The healing power of the therapeutic relationship will be highlighted and the therapeutic use of intuition and creativity will be addressed. Participants will receive a resource packet which includes a bibliography, assessment guides and descriptions of experiential exercises. Registration: Click Here! (Pub)

June 25-27: 2015 ACUTE SymposiumImproving Medical Care for Eating Disorders.  Details: The medical complications of severe eating disorders are not well understood even in excellent clinical and academic settings, because care providers rarely receive formal training in starvation or refeeding medicine and may not care for many eating disordered patients. Some of the most medically and psychologically fragile patients therefore often receive suboptimal medical care, which can result in patient harm and mistrust of the medical system, as well as provider frustration and sense of helplessness. This symposium will provide medical professionals (both physicians and allied professionals) the opportunity to review medical complications and treatment options for patients with severe eating disorders.  Registration: Click Here!  (Pro)
