“Thank you for being instrumental in my daughter’s healing process. It was so beautiful to see her sit at our dining room table with a meal she prepared herself and eat without stopping, mindfully… you are amazing.”

COVID-19 UPDATE:

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, The Renfrew Center of Northern New Jersey has shifted all Day and Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP) to a virtual platform until further notice. All of our clinical leaders have been trained in using this platform, and therapist guides and patient handbooks have been rolled out. Additionally, to support prospective patients seeking treatment during this time of uncertainty, we are still offering assessments and taking admissions at our Residential level of care in Philadelphia, PA and Coconut Creek, FL.

Virtual 2 CE Seminar for Northern NJ Professionals

 

The Unified Family: Working Together in Treatment

 

Presented by: Angela Kaloudis, LMHC, NCC
Clinical Training Specialist for The Renfrew Center

Families and others in a supportive role may often feel confused by how to help their loved one outside the scope of treatment, especially when unexpected life events—like COVID-19—occur. Even for those with the best of intentions, being in a supportive role is not always easy, and many find themselves walking on eggshells. A Unified Treatment Model provides families and friends with the opportunity to learn alongside their loved ones and acquire the tangible structure and skills outside of treatment.

This 2 CE training will highlight The Renfrew Center’s Unified Treatment Model for Eating Disorders®, a transdiagnostic evidence-based approach modified for family treatment. Attendees will learn key concepts from this treatment model to utilize with families.
