Announcements:

We are pleased to announce that The Renfrew Center of Pittsburgh is now in-network with Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Renfrew is dedicated to providing coverage to as many patients seeking treatment as possible, and we are continuously adding new insurance contracts. With the addition of Highmark Blue Cross in the Pittsburgh area, we will now be able to provide care to more adolescent girls and women seeking treatment for eating disorders.

Accepting more than 430 insurance plans across the country, The Renfrew Center has contracts with almost every managed care company for all levels of treatment and is a preferred provider for many insurance companies.


The Renfrew Center of Pittsburgh now offers an Outpatient Group.

Eating Disorders Group

The Eating Disorders Group is for adolescent girls and women of all ages who have struggled with disordered eating. Led by an experienced therapist, the group actively engages participants with each other to explore and understand the emotional and relational functions of their disordered eating and develop strategies to connect to emotions, improve communication and achieve recovery-focused goals. 

Ideal for those seeking extra support during their recovery. Group members are required to be followed by an outpatient therapist in order to participate.

Join us for an interactive event where you will:

  • Explore the messages you receive about how you should look, act and feel
  • Address the unfiltered truth about nutrition
  • Discuss the impact social media has on our body image and self-worth
  • Identify positive influencers that will enhance our pride, respect and self-compassion for our authentic selves
  • Hear from a Renfrew alumna and support as they share their own personal story of truth

 2 CE Seminar for Professionals

Breaking Free: The Treatment of Eating Disorders and Trauma

Presented by: Rebecca Berman, LCSW-C, CEDS, MLSP
Clinical Training Specialist for The Renfrew Center

Healing from an eating disorder and trauma is a complex and difficult process. Through the use of compassion, that process is enhanced when the clinician helps the client understand how the eating disorder has served as a protective response. This presentation will provide attendees with a transdiagnostic and Cognitive Processing Therapy approach to the treatment of adolescent girls and women with eating disorders and trauma.

Attendees will learn the benefits that result when their clients are able to embrace strength and resiliency in tolerating and experiencing their emotions while staying anchored in the moment. Through the use of case examples, this workshop will address the themes of esteem, trust, intimacy, and control.
