As we continue to address the challenges we face as a professional community, we recognize the importance of discerning truth in our current climate of “fake news,” unsubstantiated claims and slanted rhetoric. These forces have contributed to rising levels of distrust and vulnerability among our clients with eating disorders. Conference 2019 will examine the ways in which we can help clients develop skills to enhance critical thinking, emotional regulation and relational connection. We will also explore our own biases and capacity for taking others’ perspectives, utilizing empirically-based, justice informed science and research.
Discerning Truth will focus on cognitive and psychological flexibility, neuroscience and the developing brain, compassion, and the healing qualities of the therapeutic relationship.
