Clinicians have a wide range of training and experience with Eating Disorders. This workshop will present the most updated clinical and research information for clinicians of all experience levels, from a professional with very little experience in this area to the practitioner with a great deal of experience. Uniquely, each speaker conducts clinical work in a different setting-Dr. Solomon, in an eating recovery center; Dr. Guerdijokova, in an inpatient/outpatient psychiatric facility; and Dr. Kearney-Cooke, in a private practice setting.
Each speaker will present the latest updates on research and clinical practice in their specialty areas:
Dr. Guerdijokova – Genetic and Neurobiology Advances in the Treatment of Patients with Eating Disorders.
Dr. Kearney-Cooke – Assessment and Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa.
Dr. Solomon – Out of the Shadows: Identifying and Treating Eating Disorders in Higher Weight Patients.
Learning Objectives: After this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Outline major genetic and neurobiological factors contributing to the development of eating disorders.
- Gain an understanding about the current cutting edge biologically based treatments for eating disorders.
- Describe functions of an eating disorder and teach patients healthier ways of managing distorted thinking, interpersonal distress and difficult mood states.
- Reduce or eliminate thoughts or behaviors that lead to food restriction and weight loss.
- Promote a cognitive shift away from evaluation of self-based on shape and weight to a more complicated, healthier view of body and self.
- Describe the relationship between overweight and obesity and eating disorders.
- Identify individuals at highest risk for binge eating disorder.
- Describe at least two treatment interventions for working with individuals with binge eating disorder.
