November

SAVE THE DATE - The 27th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference, November 10-12, 2017
Philadelphia, PA USA
November 10 - November 12
SAVE THE DATE - The 27th Annual Renfrew Conference - November 10-12, 2017 at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott - Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Integrating Science, Creativity and Clinical Wisdom. Being a highly effective eating disorder therapist is a process, not a destination. As our patient population has become increasingly more complex and diverse, research has provided us with a growing body of evidence-based practices (EBPs). As a result, clinicians now face the daunting task of mastering new, cutting edge treatment approaches and integrating them into our well established and uniquely nuanced practices. In order to provide the quality of care our patients require and deserve, we must evolve along with the field. Conference 2017 will examine the challenge of learning and incorporating new skills and approaches at different points in the professional "lifespan".

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS include Patrick Kennedy; Roxanne Gay, PhD; Janet Treasure, OBE, PhD, FRCP, FRCPsych and Adele Lafrance, PhD; and Panel: Beth Hartman McGilley, PhD, FAED, Gayle Brooks, PhD, Rachel Calogero, PhD and Marcella Raimondo, PhD, MPH.

FEATURED TOPICS include: translating research into clinical practice; diverse and underserved populations; relational cultural theory skill development; body oriented practice; intersectionality; trans-diagnostic treatment; and nutritional therapy.
