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.

A Developmental Perspective on Binge Eating Disorder
