Confronting the Challenges: Treating Eating Disorder Patients with Comorbid Substance Use Disorders
Amy Baker-Dennis, PhD
Nearly 50% of eating disorder (ED) patients abuse drugs and/or alcohol. These two mental health diagnoses are linked to high rates of recidivism and mortality, yet most ED specialists and facilities have not fully integrated substance abuse (SA) treatments into their practices. Although evidence based treatments (EBT) have been identified for both ED and SA patients, no EBTs exist for the comorbid population. This workshop explores licit and illicit drugs, adaptive functions, directionality of onset, treatment models, EBTs, staffing issues, and recommendations for further research.

Family Ties: What Hurts, Helps and Heals
Judith Brisman, PhD, Margo Maine, PhD  and Judith Ruskay Rabinor, PhD
Currently a great deal of controversy surrounds the role of parental involvement during the treatment of adolescents with eating disorders. Since mothers, fathers and other family members can play a crucial part in the therapy process, the question is not so much whether, but how parents should be involved. Approaches range from direct intervention with eating to purposeful disengagement from struggles with food. This workshop explores how parents, siblings and other caretakers can benefit, or undermine, the recovery process.

Integrating Research and Practice in the Treatment of Eating Disorders
Douglas Bunnell, PhD and Stephen Wonderlich, PhD

This workshop addresses the strengths and limitations of evidence based treatments, and describes a new psychotherapy for bulimia nervosa, Integrative Cognitive Affective Therapy (ICAT). In addition, it explores the barriers between science and practice, and offers an interactive exercise designed to help clinicians and researchers influence each others’ work.

Barbara M. Greenspan Memorial Lecture
Back to the Future: Innovative Body-Centered Strategies That Have Withstood the Test of Time, Science, and Best Practices
Adrienne Ressler, MA, LMSW, CEDS
This workshop illuminates how the body itself contributes to and is, in fact, a core element of the therapeutic process. Historically, a number of seminal writers, sages, and practitioners intuitively understood the healing power of the body/brain/mind connection. Now science can validate and measure this same healing power. The evolution & use of body-centered techniques derived from gestalt therapy, psychodrama, bioenergetic analysis, Alexander technique & family sculpting will be described, explored, & demonstrated in this retrospective as they relate to contemporary right-brain theory.

Four Decades of Feminism: Reflections on Women and Eating Disorders
Gloria Steinem
For more than four decades, Gloria Steinem has been an organizer for the feminist movement. A tireless pioneer, a woman with a voice and a vision, Gloria Steinem has advocated for female political, social, sexual and economic power in America and throughout the world. During her keynote presentation, Ms. Steinem recounts some of her own formative influences and argues for the importance of continuing to understand today's gender losses & gains. She explores feminism among contemporary women and offers a new way of understanding the current climate within which women continue to struggle for equality. In this context, she offers fresh insight into a feminist understanding of socio-cultural & personality variables identified as key contributors to the development & treatment of eating disorders. Ms. Steinem's presentation will inspire and empower us!

Using EMDR in the Treatment of Eating Disorders and Trauma
Nancy Bravman, LCSW
 
Eating disorders present particular challenges to a clinician who uses EMDR, since eating disordered clients frequently have difficulty tolerating the emotions and the level of awareness that EMDR is designed to access. This workshop presents a model for safe and effective use of EMDR with eating disordered clients. Participants will learn techniques to enhance affect tolerance and stabilization, strategies for target selection & protocol modifications, and strategies for enhancing optimal EMDR reprocessing. Issues to consider when EMDR is adjunct to ongoing psychotherapy with another clinician will also be addressed. Attendees should have a working knowledge of EMDR.

Eating Disorders Recovery: Professional and Personal Perspectives on Definitions, Self-Disclosure and Practice
Carolyn Costin, MA, MEd, MFT, Beth Hartman McGilley, PhD, FAED and Mark Warren, MD
Definitions of eating disorders recovery are matters of longstanding empirical and clinical debate. Questions such as whether patients can ever fully recover, and when, if at all, “recovered” professionals should practice in the field, have not been resolved. During this workshop, three eating disorders experts address various aspects of the debate, including differing conceptions of recovery, employment issues for recovered professionals, perspectives on self-disclosure during the course of therapy, & implications of research on the most beneficial aspects of treatment.

How do you define it, establish it, enhance it; and what are its nuances, its complications, its inadvertent consequences? This workshop offers answers to these questions and suggests new ways to further understand the relationship between the therapeutic alliance and eating disorders treatment.

The Connected Brain: Exploring Relational-Cultural Therapy & Attachment Theory in the Age of Neuroscience
Amy Banks, MD
 
Thirty years ago, Stone Center scholars courageously critiqued existing models of human development. Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) suggested healthy human development was through and toward relationship, rather than through separation and individuation. At first, RCT was ridiculed as feminist theory or ignored, and then only tolerated. Now it is celebrated. Recently, the APA identified it as one of the ten most important contemporary psychological theories. This workshop describes the current state of RCT, a complex body of work that integrates the neuroscience of relationship into a model of unlimited potential of the human mind and body, when in growth fostering connection.

Understanding and Managing the Difficult to Treat Patient with Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa
Michael Strober, PhD, ABPP
The variations in psychic development and biology of the mind that predispose to anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa also promote staunch resistance to treatment of the motives that sustain the illness. The plight of the person unshakably ill with a chronic eating disorder is heart rending, but the despair is difficult to penetrate, or remedy. This workshop discusses factors that predispose to chronicity in eating disorders, intrapsychic adaptations that sustain treatment resistance, and approaches to management of the difficult to treat patient, including transference & countertransference patterns that adversely impact the treatment process.

Rev. Steven Wiley Emmett, PhD, Susan Kleinman, MA, BC-DMT, NCC, and Jennifer Nardozzi, PsyD
 
Traditional treatment approaches for eating disorders include medical, nutritional, and psychological interventions. Recently, spiritual interventions are receiving increasing attention.

This presentation emphasizes interventions that help patients discover the spiritual sustenance to connect mind, body & spirit and move toward a healthy recovery. A former Renfrew Center patient will share her experience of recovery & the impact of spiritual interventions.

Eating Disorders in DSM-V Back to the Future?
B. Timothy Walsh, MD
DSM-V is scheduled to be published in the spring of 2013. This presentation reviews recommendations for changes to criteria for eating disorders diagnoses, and the rationale behind these recommendations. Modest changes are proposed for Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. It is recommended that Binge Eating Disorder be officially recognized. Modifications to the criteria for eating disorders now located in “childhood disorders” of DSM-IV are under consideration. Several clinical implications of the recommendations are outlined, including a potential reduction in the need for EDNOS.

Strategies to promote mutual understanding, acceptance and healing are presented. In addition, participants have an opportunity to explore their own relationship with food and body image, as shaped by ethnic/racial/gender influences.

The Intricate Dance of Genes and
Environment in Eating Disorders
Cynthia M. Bulik, PhD, FAED
Moving beyond old Nature versus Nurture debates, this keynote presentation highlights the complicated ways genes & environment interact to influence risk for eating disorders. Following decades of misdirected belief that eating disorders were purely sociocultural phenomena, enormous strides have been made uncovering the genetic underpinnings of these pernicious disorders. Dr. Bulik provides a listener-friendly distillation of contemporary genetics while acknowledging that biology does not act alone. Culture clearly plays a role and the critical question is how biology influences vulnerability to toxic environmental pressures. She reviews what we know today and where we need to go in order to advance our understanding of the complex interplay of genes and environment in eating disorders.
