2 CE Seminar for Professionals

Permission to Pause:
Supporting College Students in Pursuing a Higher Level of Care

Presented by: Lori Ciotti, LICSW 
Regional Assistant Vice President, The Renfrew Centers

Attempting to balance classes, social life, internships and extracurricular activities is a challenge for most college students – particularly those struggling with disordered eating. When presented with the recommendation to a higher level of care, these students often avoid accepting much-needed support and erect barriers to justify opting out of treatment. Unfortunately, postponing recommended eating disorder treatment often exacerbates eating disorder behaviors and creates longer-lasting obstacles on the road to recovery.

This workshop will explore the unique challenges clinicians are up against when making the case for time-sensitive treatment with students needing a higher level of care. Discussion will highlight techniques to integrate flexibility into academic scheduling as well as many other creative options and solutions to meet students’ level of motivation and help them receive the level of care they need.

Date: Monday, March 4, 2019 
Registration/Check-in: 9:00 am - 9:30 am
Presentation: 9:30 am - 11:30 am
