Announcing the KEYNOTE SPEAKERS at The 28th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals
The 28th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals
Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond:
Cultivating Hope in an Age of Disconnection
November 9-11, 2018 • Philadelphia Airport Marriott
17.5 CE/CMEs Offered
Many eating disorder clients are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety in a polarized society where anger, prejudice, loss of civility, bullying, and threats to personal safety create an atmosphere of distrust and disconnection. Practitioners are tasked with helping clients navigate their way through emotionally-charged times by providing optimism, prompting dialogue that supports diverse needs, and creating a sense of community. Managing our own concerns and reactions is a great challenge for clinicians today.
Conference 2018 will focus on evidence-based strategies, clinically relevant research and development of skills for building resilience including emotional tolerance, self-care, interpersonal connection, radical empathy, and selective disengagement.
Additional topics to be addressed include:
Treatment Interventions, Social Justice, Diverse Populations, Substance Use, Trauma, and Ethics.
New this year, we are pleased to announce Pre-Registration.
Space is limited, reserve your seat now for this 3-day Conference.
