Virtual 2 CE Seminar for Southern NJ Professionals

Helping Families Navigate Their Emotions to Enhance Recovery Support

Presented by: Ashley Moser, LMFT
Regional Assistant Vice President, The Renfrew Centers

Family plays a powerful role in the treatment and recovery from eating disorders. While the treatment focus often centers around the emotions of the identified patient, members of the family also experience strong emotions that can either hinder or enhance the recovery of their loved one. 

This 2 CE training will offer strategies for professionals to engage the entire family as they learn to respond to their own emotions in ways that support long term recovery. Attendees will explore family members’ common responses to the discovery of their loved one’s eating disorder. The presentation will include strategies for clinicians to identify how the family can balance their own emotional needs in addition to serving as a recovery support to their loved one.

Date: Friday, June 26, 2020
Time:
8:45 am - 11:00 am (EDT) - Includes introduction

Virtual 2 CE Seminar for Southern NJ Professionals

Focusing on Emotions: A Transdiagnostic Approach to Treating Complex Eating Disorders

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

This 2 CE presentation examines the psychological complexity of eating disorders and explores the benefits of a cutting edge, evidence-based trans-diagnostic treatment which focuses on emotional awareness and exposure. There is now growing evidence that emotional avoidance is a maintaining factor for eating disorders as well as co-morbid conditions such as anxiety, depression, substance abuse and trauma response. Treatment which specifically focuses on targeting emotional avoidance, while developing emotional awareness, tolerance and acceptance, can provide an integrated, unified approach to resolve the myriad of symptoms which are often associated with the complex eating disorder client. 

This workshop will apply concepts from David Barlow’s Unified Protocol for the Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders to the treatment of complex eating disorder patients. Lecture, small group activities and experiential exposure demonstrations will be utilized.

Date: Friday, August 7, 2020
Time:
8:45 am - 11:00 am (EDT)
Includes introduction
