Overview
This one day CME/CEU conference includes an evidence-based, clinically relevant series of talks and workshops for practitioners who deliver care to patients with, or at risk for, eating disorders.  Topics covered will include an update on research examining biological underpinnings of disordered eating and anorexia nervosa (AN), the utilization of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) strategies for managing challenging patient-therapist interactions, a review of treatment approaches for patients with the newly defined DSM-5 diagnosis of Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), and the assessment and treatment of eating disorders in older adults. Workshops will provide practical clinical skills to address managing medical and ethical challenges that frequently arise in this high-risk population, the use of DBT to treat patients with multi-symptom profiles, somatic symptom presentations in youth with ARFID and the implementation of Family Based Treatment as well as weight loss interventions for patients with a history of disordered eating.
