Clinical Implications and Applications of Psychoneurology: Translating Neuroscience to the Consulting Room
Francine Lapides, MA, MFT

The stress of daily living causes mind-brain-body systems to dysregulate, resulting in symptoms such as depression, anxiety and addictive relationships to substances or behaviors. This full day workshop describes contemporary re-search in neuroscience that suggests emotional healing takes place primarily in the circuitry of the right hemisphere, which is dominant for attachment, intense emotionality and the knowledge of how to be in relationship. This research supports the recent shift from a neutral, analytic style of psychotherapy to more intersubjective, relational approaches, and emphasizes the importance of relationship-based healing, which occurs beneath the specific interventions of differing theoretical models.

Beyond Compulsive Eating: Turning to Yourself Instead of Food
Carol Munter
During infancy, food relieves the physical distress of hunger and promotes peaceful sleep. As a result, throughout life, food has the potential to feel soothing, even when the distress is psychic rather than physical. This full day workshop describes the Overcoming Overeating treatment of compulsive eating which emphasizes the importance of returning food to its original purpose, a means to satisfy physiological hunger, and helping adults to feed themselves “on demand.” Gradually, this approach enables the compulsive overeater to build psychic infrastructure, think about her problems rather than eat about them, and turn to herself instead of food. Reading Overcoming Overeating and/or When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies in preparation for the workshop is recommended.

Disorders: The Physician’s Perspective

This full day workshop presents in-depth discussion and debate about four aspects of eating disorder treatment relevant for all providers and of particular significance for physicians working the field. Topics to be addressed include Pharmacotherapy; Diagnostics; Tertiary vs. Secondary and Primary Care; and Managed Care. At the end of this activity, participants should be able to examine the complications inherent in prescribing medication for eating disorder patients; review the spectrum of eating disorder diagnostics, including EDNOS; identify the difference between primary, secondary and tertiary care; and assess how provider and managed care can best work together.

Calming The Inner Critic
Jane Shure, PhD, LCSW and Beth Weinstock, PhD
Anyone struggling with an eating disorder lives with a harsh inner critic that thwarts freedom of expression, creates guilt and fear, feeds self-destructive behavior and diminishes self-esteem. This full day workshop describes the original, protective function of the inner critic, presents strategies to help clients give up old patterns of self-sabotage and develop a powerful inner coach that encourages self-affirmation. Discoveries in neuroscience, which support this therapeutic approach will be explored. Additional topics include the inner critic and negative self-talk of the therapist. Case examples and experiential exercises are presented to strengthen therapeutic skills in working with these issues.

Training Caregivers in the New Maudsley Method of Shared Collaborative Care
Janet Treasure, MD
 
Family members are primarily responsible for taking care of individuals with anorexia nervosa, but frequently they lack the skills and resources to be constructive. Instead, interpersonal processes develop which serve to maintain the eating disorder. This full day workshop describes a manual-based intervention to help family members manage eating disorder symptoms effectively, by training them to moderate ex-pressed emotion, improve communication with motivational interviewing and conduct functional analyses of family behavior patterns. Evidence to support this intervention is presented, as well as an interactive demonstration.

THE BARBARA M. GREENSPAN MEMORIAL LECTURE
Don’t Ask Me to Forgive You:
A Radical Approach to Healing Intimate Wounds
Janis Abrahms Spring, PhD
 
Forgiveness is considered the gold standard for recovery from interpersonal injuries. In real life, however, hurt parties often can’t or won’t forgive, particularly when the offender is unrepentant or dead. This workshop, especially relevant for the treatment of trauma, offers a radical, new alternative to forgiveness - a profound, life-affirming, healing process called Acceptance. Participants will learn concrete steps for healing victims of trauma, including how to de-shame the injury, release obsessive preoccupations with the abuse, integrate an appropriate share of responsibility for what went wrong, and decide what kind of future relationship is best to have with an offender.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
The Broader Implications of the Research on CBT for Eating Disorders

Christopher Fairburn, DM, FRCPsych, FMedSci
 
The research on cognitive behavior therapy for eating disorders has implications which go beyond this specific field. In his keynote presentation, Dr. Fairburn will address four topics to illustrate these implications. These include: 1) the advantages of adopting a transdiagnostic perspective; 2) “complex patients” and complex treatments; 3) the value of unexpected findings; and 4) the importance of the therapeu-tic relationship. It will be argued, with the support of empirical data, that with regard to each of these topics, certain widely held assumptions are likely not to be valid.

How Hypnosis can be Employed to Establish a Realistic Body Image in the Eating Disordered

Hypnosis lends itself to aspects of eating disorder treatment, as anorexia nervosa clearly displays trance phenomena. Changing any element of an eating disorder may inspire beneficial shifts in other parts of the disorder. This presentation illustrates hypnotic approaches designed to establish a reality based body image over a relatively brief treatment sequence.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
The Connected Brain
Amy Banks, MD
Almost thirty years ago, the founding scholars of The Stone Center, Jean Baker Miller, Irene Stiver, Judith Jordan and Jan Surrey, theorized that healthy psychological growth and development happened through and toward relationship. This was a radical departure from prevailing theory that emphasized the importance of developing increasing levels of separation and individuality. In the present day, as new technology becomes available to measure brain and body function, the field of neuroscience offers convincing support for relational theory and clinical practice. This keynote presentation brings together contemporary relational/cultural theory with current neurobiology, to explore ways in which we are “hardwired to connect,” and to consider how our biological systems get hijacked by psychiatric disorders, such as addictions and eating disorders.

What creates growth-fostering change in a therapeutic en-counter has been greatly debated. Is it the well-timed interpretation, repetitive cognitive reframing or simply the relationship itself? This workshop explores how we change by examining the final common pathway of change -- the development of new neural pathways in our minds and bodies.
