Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond:

Eating Disorders Across the Lifespan and In Diverse Populations

NOVEMBER 11 - 13, 2016

Philadelphia Airport Marriott

 

Conference 2016 will examine developmental stages and transitions, race and ethnic diversity, gender and sexual identity issues. The Program will explore the influence of maladaptive attachment, the impact of trauma and the marginalization of self – all of which may keep clients stuck and unable to access potential pathways towards healing and recovery. We will further consider, through a feminist relational lens, the way in which intersecting forms of oppression may affect the development and treatment of eating disorders.

Binge Eating Disorder: Current Paradigms in Treatment and the Advancement of a More Inclusive Eating Disorders Community

Chevese Turner, BA & Robyn Goldberg, RDN, CEDRD

This workshop addresses the many nuances of treating BED, including the role of the dietitian, and the impact of weight biases.

 

Healing Hungry Hearts: Psycho-Spiritual Factors of Emotional Eating

Linda Ciotola, MEd, CHES, TEP, CETIII

This experiential workshop draws upon the developmental theory of JL Moreno, and methods from psychodrama, group psychotherapy and sociometry, to illustrate the disguised connections between physical, emotional and spiritual cravings and disordered eating. Specific therapeutic techniques such as soliloquy, doubling, mirroring and role reversal are illustrated.

 

A Developmental Perspective on Binge Eating Disorder

Victoria Butterworth, PhD

This workshop describes psychological damage that can occur in three different stages of childhood; the adult BED symptoms that follow when issues from these stages remain unresolved; and body-centered techniques for achieving developmental closure and symptom relief.
