2017 Eating Disorders Conference: From Prevention to Intervention
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine presents its 2017 Eating Disorders Conference: From Prevention to Intervention
This one day CME/CEU conference includes an evidence-based and highly relevant series of talks and workshops for practitioners who deliver care to patients with, or at risk for, eating disorders. Topics covered will include the prevention of disordered eating and weight control behaviors, suicide and self-injury in patients with eating disorders, assessing where and when to refer patients to intensive treatment programs, and neural and behavioral influences on body weight. Workshops will provide practical clinical skills in managing psychiatric and medical emergencies and abnormal illness behavior in patients with eating disorders and in the implementation of meal-based and cognitive behavioral interventions.
After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
• Describe prevention strategies for disordered eating and weight control behaviors.
• Critically assess outcome data from intensive treatment programs for eating disorders and identify important elements of an effective treatment program.
• Discuss the relationship between disordered eating and both suicidal and non-suicidal self-injury behaviors.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for psychiatrists, pediatricians, adolescent medicine specialists, psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, registered dieticians, occupational therapists, educators, and others interested in the evidence-based treatment of eating disorders.
