Free | Professional Webinar
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (ET)

Presented by: Jana Ross, LMHC & Christine Laker, MS, RD, LDN

Held Online

Body image has often been referred to as the last stage in eating disorder recovery, possibly due to the myth that it can only be explored once the patient’s behaviors are stable. Often, there may be confusion among members of the treatment team as to where body image falls within the scope of practice.

This webinar will examine how The Renfrew Center Unified Treatment Model for Eating Disorders® integrates body image work at higher levels of care, across disciplines and in Individual and Group Therapy. This presentation will be rooted in a weight-inclusive framework.

Please note: This webinar is a re-broadcast and not a live presentation.
