$70.00 – $150.00

FULL DAY WORKSHOP (6 CEUS for licensed psychologists; 6 clock hours for Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage and Family Therapists)


Ashley Solomon, PsyD, CEDS

Anna Guerdijokova, PhD, LISW, CCRC

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:

  1. Outline major genetic and neurobiological factors contributing to the development of eating disorders.
  2. Gain an understanding about the current cutting edge biologically based treatments for eating disorders.
  3. Describe functions of an eating disorder and teach patients healthier ways of managing distorted thinking, interpersonal distress and difficult mood states.
  4. Reduce or eliminate thoughts or behaviors that lead to food restriction and weight loss.
  5. Promote a cognitive shift away from evaluation of self-based on shape and weight to a more complicated, healthier view of body and self.
  6. Describe the relationship between overweight and obesity and eating disorders.
  7. Identify individuals at highest risk for binge eating disorder.
  8. Describe at least two treatment interventions for working with individuals with binge eating disorder.
