The Renfrew Center - Eating Disorders: Integrating Brain, Body and the Therapeutic Relationship
Date: June 1, 2016
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: Hartford Marriott Downtown
City: Hartford
State: CT
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. 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. Strategies culled from body-oriented therapies will be explored through film clips, demonstration and experiential exercises. The healing power of the therapeutic relationship and the therapeutic use of intuition and creativity will be addressed.

The Renfrew Center - Integrating Brain and Body: Mindfulness, Metaphor and Experiential Methods
Date: June 3, 2016
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: The Century House
City: Latham
State: NY
Details: Eating disorders can present treatment challenges for even the most experienced clinician. The entrenched nature of the illness makes for a formidable foe in the therapy room. To add to the complexity of treatment, the physicality of eating disorder symptoms can sometimes hide the less obvious, but equally serious, issue - fusion with thoughts and emotions. A key element in this seminar will be how to facilitate addressing these deeper issues. Mindfulness as a clinical intervention will be explored, discussing both the most recent research on therapeutic mindfulness and what that specifically means for the practicing clinician. The application of mindful awareness to move the client from a position of avoidance of emotion to acceptance of emotion will be demonstrated. Participants will explore how to implement experiential methods designed to circumvent cognitive fusion and will learn strategies for decoding spoken words as well as the unspoken language of the body. The power of metaphor and creativity as treatment tools will be taught through film clips, literature/poetry/music, experiential exercises and breakout groups.
