Eating Disorders: Integrating Brain, Body and the Therapeutic Relationship
Date: June 3, 2015
Time: 8:15 AM
Location: New Haven Lawn Club
City: New Haven
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, empowering clinicians with the knowledge and perspective necessary to effectively treat eating disorders. 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 and, thus, a more potent and creative treatment process. Strategies culled from body-oriented therapies will be explored through film clips, demonstration and experiential exercises, small group discussion and videotaped material from clinical sessions. The healing power of the therapeutic relationship will be highlighted and the therapeutic use of intuition and creativity will be addressed. Participants will receive a resource packet which includes a bibliography, assessment guides and descriptions of experiential exercises.

The Slippery Slope of Eating Disorders
Date: June 3, 2015
Time: 12:00 PM
Location:
City:
State:
Details: The degree of severity around body image issues often signals an indication that a patient is moving closer to the edge of the slippery slope leading to eating disorders. Where is the line at which eating and body image issues cross into disordered eating and beyond? When is it time to recommend a higher level of care? How can professionals best support patients with this transition? In this webinar, attendees will learn to identify the signs that a patient is caught in a downward spiral and will be provided with resources to empathically challenge distorted perceptions and beliefs. Information regarding how to communicate the dangers ahead on that treacherous slope while keeping the relational bridge to the client intact will be discussed.

International Conference and Exhibition on Gastrointestinal Therapeutics
Date: August 25, 2015
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: Melia valencia de congresso
City: Valencia, Spain
State: NV
Details: International Conference and Exhibition on Gastrointestinal Therapeutics August 25-27, 2015, Valencia, Spain, Europe Advanced therapeutic options and treatment procedures for gastrointestinal disorders OMICS International is pleased to announce its annual conferences in 2015 and 2016. One of the premier annual conference is Gastrointestinal Therapeutics Meeting. Open Minded International Conferences (OMICS) are determined to put forth a platform for eminent personalities to share their expertise and research at Gastrointestinal Therapeutics, Spain, Europe. The conference throws light on thought provoking topics and recent research in the field of Breast cancer like, gastrointestinal Carcinogenesis and Therapeutics, Inflammatory Bowel Disease Treatment and Management, Gastrointestinal Bleeding- Treatment and Management, Pancreatic diseases and Treatment, Emerging therapies for Viral Hepatitis and Liver Fibrosis, Treatment for Functional GI disorders, Gastrointestinal Pharmacotherapy, Gastrointestinal therapeutic endoscopy- Advancements and Challenges, Gastric bypass surgery, Recent Advancements and Current research in Gastrointestinal Therapeutics. The organizing committee is gearing up for an exciting and informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world covering all the aspects of gastroenterology. Gastro-2015 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of gastro diseases. It also provides the chance for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the fields of Gastrointestinal therapeutics. It helps in promoting the advancement of gastroenterology. It provides a platform for organizations, companies, associations, societies, institutions, statutory bodies and other authorities and individuals interested in the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. Gastroenterology is a specialty that tends to receive relatively little attention from a policy perspective and compared with other specialties, attracts relatively little charitable research funding. There have been increases in the incidence of most gastrointestinal disorders in Europe which have major implications for future healthcare provision. Gastrointestinal cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Europe. It is also the most common cancer in men and the second most common in women after breast cancer. This gastric bypass surgery event is a general need for further research into the incidence, prognosis and public health burden of many gastrointestinal disorders across Europe and a particular need for more studies from Eastern Europe, along with pan-European and multinational studies. For more details please visit- http://gastro.conferenceseries.com/ Recent studies of market value of gastrointestinal therapeutics shows differences in different parts of the world. The gastrointestinal (GI) therapeutics market for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis (UC), and Crohn’s disease (CD) in the eight major markets (8MM) — the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Canada and Japan — is expected to decrease in value from $6.8 billion in 2012 to $6.6 billion by 2019, at a negative Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 0.3%, forecasts business intelligence provider GBI Research. The upcoming patent expiry of various major drugs in gastric surgery and other gastrointestinal diseases will register unfavorable growth in European markets. The patent expiries will harm the overall market value and the entry of generics and biosimilars will also have a strong impact on sales. The major factors currently stabilizing the market include the increasing prevalence of GI diseases, growing awareness of the importance of detecting these diseases early and the availability of effective diagnostics creates an urgent need for organizing this gastrointestinal surgery conference. OMICS Group, the World Class Open Access Publisher and Scientific Event Organizer is delighted to host “International Conference and Exhibition on Gastrointestinal Therapeutics” during August 25-27, 2015 at Valencia, Spain. This gastrointestinal conference highlights the theme “Advanced therapeutic options and treatment procedures for gastrointestinal disorders”. Gastro-2015 mainly focuses on the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for gastric diseases. The conference discusses the latest research outcomes and technological advancements in the field and brings together leading gastroenterologists, surgeons, physicians, research scholars, students along with industrial and pharma professionals to exchange share their views on critical aspects of gastroenterology research. This event brings together Presidents and Eminent Personalities to explore opportunities on emerging platforms in the field of gastrointestinal therapeutics. With members from around the world focused on learning about latest diagnostic and treatment procedures of various gastrointestinal diseases and all the related aspects of gastrointestinal diseases this is your best opportunity to reach the largest assemblage of participants from the entire world. From the workshop and speech of the eminent people of gastroenterology, you can update your knowledge about current situation of gastroenterology and receive name and recognition at this 3-day event.
