KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
Women and Hunger: What are We Really Starving For?
Erica Jong
Today, despite the advances of feminism, women are still struggling to “have it all” - career, family, relationships and time for themselves. Most often, women in today’s society feel guilty about seeking personal fulfillment. In her keynote presentation, Erica Jong will speak about how these issues have affected her personally, both as a woman and as a powerful spokesperson for feminist thought. In particular, she will address the fear that women experience as they identify what they are really “starving” for and reach out for what they want. Confronting questions of independence, self-esteem, sex, power and courage, Erica will explore what these terms mean today and whether we have really come as far as we think. Finally, she will offer insight on how clinicians can help clients speak their own truths and new ways in which to maximize change.

Lessons from a Seasoned Therapist: A Glimpse Behind Closed Doors
Carolyn Costin, MA, MEd, MFT
Rarely do we get to see other therapists in action. Experienced therapists can explain what they do, but a picture is worth a thousand words.  Clinicians want to know what to do in the difficult moments: how to get unstuck, or deal with resistance, chronic illness and denial. Through the use of video, Carolyn Costin invites participants into her session, where they can benefit from her 30 years of experience addressing these issues. Participants are invited to present difficult cases.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
Beyond the Body Betrayed: 10 Key Factors Influencing Positive Outcomes in Eating Disorders Treatment

Kathryn Zerbe, MD
Based on her forthcoming book, Integrated Treatment of Eating Disorders: Beyond the Body Betrayed, Dr. Zerbe elaborates on 10 key factors that can lead to more positive outcomes in the treatment of eating disorders. Therapist authenticity and the value of accepting small gains over time emerge as central to improvement for patients and for the therapist's ongoing sense of well-being.  Using clinical examples to illustrate the 10 points that have emerged from a synthesis of research in the field over the past quarter century, practical recommendations will be made to help the clinician remain vitally involved and empowered.  Participants will learn techniques to build the therapeutic alliance and to help the patient eventually mourn and let go of their symptoms.

Inner Spiritual Wisdom: How to Access & Blend It into Traditional Therapies

Long-term recovery from disordered eating depends upon spiritual support. Yet, mental health professionals generally have little training that blends spiritual approaches into traditional treatment modalities.

Effects of Different Pharmacologic Interventions on Craving, Restricting, Overeating and Purging
Mark F. Schwartz, ScD and Dorsey Dysart, MD
An important aspect of eating disorders treatment is the reduction of cravings and addictions. This workshop identifies the brain systems that activate cravings and addictions in eating disorders clients and illustrates the use of various pharmacologic interventions as an adjunct to ongoing psychotherapy.  The relationship of neuro-transmitters and medication to addictions and cravings is elaborated and a protocol for combining psychotherapy with medications is described.  Some of these medications include prometha, suboxone, naltrexone, camprall, topamax and a variety of SSRI and mood stabilizers.  The results suggest a new theoretical understanding of subtypes of eating disorders.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
Sustaining Life: Treating the Chronically Ill Patient with Anorexia Nervosa

Michael Strober, PhD
The suffering of anorexia nervosa is difficult for many to fully grasp. Not only is the patient’s unflinching commitment to starvation rituals unbearably frustrating for both therapist and family, most patients do not even remotely comprehend the forces that perpetuate their illness and interfere with effective therapy. Literature discussing the care of these patients is sparse, and rarely does the decision to undertake their treatment receive the depth of contemplation and planning required on the part of patient, therapist, and loved ones. Treating the chronically ill patient requires clinical judgments and specific technical skills of extraordinary delicacy, and the management of transference and countertransference is equally challenging. This keynote presentation will address these issues by combining detailed discussion of intervention strategies with case illustrations.
