2 CE Training for Professionals

Presented by: Ashley Moser, LMFT
Site Director, The Renfrew Center of Charlotte

This workshop 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.

Cost: $20 • Lunch will be served

Free Community Event

Can We Really Have It All?

The Renfrew Center of Charlotte invites alumni, friends, families, and the community to join us for a free workshop.

With the ever-growing list of demands on women in today’s society, many find themselves overwhelmed and overworked. Not only are women expected to do it all, but they are expected to look good while doing it too. This workshop will identify the pressures that women are faced with to uphold the standard of perfection, not just in their daily lives but also in their physical appearances.

Attendees will:

  • Explore the increasing demands placed upon women to achieve at home, at work and in the mirror.
  • Recognize the impact of common major life transitions on how women perceive themselves and their bodies during this phase of life.
  • Discuss their struggles with trying to balance responsibility and self-care in a community of peers.
  • Learn strategies to navigate external pressures and reconnect with what they value.

Facilitated by: Ashley Moser, LMFT, Site Director, The Renfrew Center of Charlotte
