The 29th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals – Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Discerning Truth

November 8 - November 10

Discerning Truth Conference Banner

November 8-10: Details: FEATURED KEYNOTE SPEAKER: LISA LING, journalist, author, and television host. As we continue to address the challenges we face as a professional community, we recognize the importance of discerning truth in our current climate of “fake news”, unsubstantiated claims and slanted rhetoric. These forces have contributed to rising levels of distrust and vulnerability among our clients with eating disorders. Conference 2019 will examine the ways in which we can help clients develop skills to enhance critical thinking, emotional regulation, and relational connection. At the same time, it is incumbent upon us to explore our own biases and capacity for taking others’ perspectives, utilizing empirically-based, justice informed science and research. Discerning Truth will focus on cognitive and psychological flexibility, neuroscience and the developing brain, compassion, and the healing qualities of the therapeutic relationship. 18 CEs available. Registration opens June 4, 2019. Location: Philadelphia Airport Marriott, Philadelphia, PA Time: 9 AM – 5 PM ET. Additional Information: Learn More. (Pub)
