The impact of racism, sexism, ageism, as well as sexual orientation and size discrimination can produce undue anxiety, depression, isolation and maladaptive coping strategies. This workshop examines the unique experiences of marginalized people, which can contribute to an increased vulnerability to eating disorders and identity, body image and self-esteem conflicts.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION The Deepest Hunger: Young Women, Eating Disorders and the Search for the Radiant Inner Self
Naomi Wolf
Over the last 15 years, the work of Carol Gilligan and The Stone Center has provided great insight into the treatment of eating disorders by emphasizing the importance of the relational self. In her keynote presentation, Naomi Wolf builds upon these earlier writings to further explore what young women need to overcome obsessive, dualistic thinking and strivings to achieve externalized norms of perfection. She describes her work at the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership and explains how its approach calls upon young women’s strength, challenges them to set inner benchmarks for self-directed excellence and affirms their appetite for big dreams and ethical ways of living. In this way, Woodhull shows women how to acquire and exert power, authority and appetite, helping them to turn away from depression and obsessive behaviors such as eating disorders and exercise abuse, towards positive social action, community-building and ethical empowerment.

Babette Rothschild, MSW, LCSW
In the helping professions, especially psychotherapy, empathy is a double-edged sword. It is our most “tried and true” therapeutic tool, and, at the same time, it can be the vehicle for some of the professional hazards we face. When used consciously, empathy gives us important insight into the emotional, cognitive and sometimes physical states of our clients. However, when activated habitually or unconsciously, empathy can put the therapist at risk for serious, debilitating psychological and emotional impact. This keynote presentation illuminates the psychology and neurophysiology of empathy, including the mechanisms of transmission of empathy from one person to another, and explores the implications of its use.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION Biological, Psychodynamic and Cultural Factors in Eating Disorders: Translations to Clinical Practice
Pauline S. Powers, MD
Recently, there has been an explosion of information about the biological aspects of eating disorders. Identification of genetic contributions to etiology and new information about the regulation of energy balance are among the most important contributions. The recognition of binge eating disorder (BED) has resulted in a growing collaboration between the fields of obesity and eating disorders, and there is great interest in new pharmacologic treatments, particularly for BED. During this keynote presentation, the most significant advances in the field are summarized. In addition, the limitations of focusing solely on biological factors are discussed and methods for integrating psychodynamic and cultural issues into treatment planning are reviewed.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION Psychotherapy for “The New Adolescence”
Ron Taffel, PhD
Adolescence has changed in compelling ways, and therapists must revise treatment to match the challenges of the 21st century. While fundamental clinical skills remain relevant, therapists need to reconsider how to deal with a self-enclosed and super-stimulated youth culture, filled with more extreme acting-out at earlier ages than ever before. This keynote offers a new paradigm for the treatment of teens. Integrating perspectives on a dramatically altered social environment with traditional developmental theory, concrete clinical guidelines will be outlined for dealing with today’s resistant kids, including lying in the office, confidentiality, the “wall of silence,” and the importance of involving peers in treatment. Special attention is devoted to the intense, emotional demands on therapists who work with difficult adolescents.
