Join us on August 30th at 7 pm to explore the truth about this prevalent issue, and discover that, in reality, we are formed in God's beautiful image.

Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Eating Disorders Across the Lifespan and In Diverse Populations

Time: 8:00 AM
Location: Philadelphia Airport Marriott
City: Philadelphia
State: PA
Details: The Conference 2016, which will take place from November 11-13, 2016, will examine developmental stages and transitions, race and ethnic diversity, gender and sexual identity issues. The Program will explore the influence of maladaptive attachment, the impact of trauma and the marginalization of self – all of which may keep clients stuck and unable to access potential pathways towards healing and recovery. We will further consider, through a feminist relational lens, the way in which intersecting forms of oppression may affect the development and treatment of eating disorders. Keynote Presentations: From Competition to Care: The Evolution of a Feminist Anne-Marie Slaughter, DPhil, JD Wired for Healing: Dyadic Repair of Attachment Trauma Diana Fosha, PhD Shining the Light on Marginalized Populations: A Discussion on Race and Gender Gayle E. Brooks, PhD Rachel Levine, MD Cultivating Resilience and Confidence: Helping Adolescent Girls Thrive Rachel Simmons, A.B. Featured Workshops: Beginning with Ourselves: Conversations About Race and Ethnicity in the Treatment of Eating Disorders Sarah Chipps, PsyD & Marissa Sappho, LCSW, BCD, CEDS This workshop addresses the challenging question of how to enhance awareness, understanding and effective intervention during the treatment of racial and ethnic minorities. Particular emphasis is placed upon recognizing clinical blind spots. Healing Hungry Hearts: Psycho-Spiritual Factors of Emotional Eating Linda Ciotola, MEd, CHES, TEP, CETIII This experiential workshop draws upon the developmental theory of JL Moreno, and methods from psychodrama, group psychotherapy and sociometry, to illustrate the disguised connections between physical, emotional and spiritual cravings and disordered eating. Specific therapeutic techniques such as soliloquy, doubling, mirroring and role reversal are illustrated. Where is the Hope When You’re Ashamed to Exist? Nikki Rollo, PhD, LMFT & Norman H. Kim, PhD This presentation uses Jungian concepts and Compassion-Focused Therapy to discuss the treatment of identity and self-worth issues, with an emphasis on increasing self-compassion. Eating Disorders: Who Dies? Mark Warren, MD, MPH, FAED & Mary Tantillo, PhD, PMHCNS-BC, FAED From a relational-cultural perspective, this presentation examines research on mortality, with an emphasis on the multiple disconnections that exacerbate an eating disorder. It offers strategies to promote neurobiological and interpersonal connections that foster successful treatment and avoid premature death.

6th Bi-annual Body Image and Self-Esteem Conference - Call for Submissions
Date: May 11, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM
Location: Chestnut Conference Centre
City: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
State:
Details: The National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) is pleased to be hosting its sixth bi-annual Body-Image and Self-Esteem Conference. The conference will be held at the Chestnut Conference Centre, Toronto on Thursday May 11 & Friday May 12, 2017. This Conference is a unique opportunity in Canada to share and to learn more about the current research, evidence-based practices and innovative outreach in a multi-disciplinary, action-oriented environment. We are currently seeking submissions for workshop sessions (75 or 90 minutes). We invite contributions from individuals who may be working in either eating disorder research, treatment, or prevention (including critical media literacy and early intervention). This call for submissions should be considered guidance as to what potential topics may be suitable, and should not be considered exhaustive. Conference 2017 is framed around the ideas of body acceptance, body equity, diversity, intersectionality, and self-esteem. Historically, portrayals of and research about individuals with eating disorders have not been fully representative of the diversity of individuals who are affected. Submissions are particularly welcomed from people who are working with eating disorders in marginalized and under-researched populations. Attendees join us from many disciplines, and may include child and youth workers, dietitians, educators, fitness professionals, nurses, psychologists, public health professionals, social workers, and therapists, as well as affected individuals or their loved ones/caregivers.
