2 CE Seminar for Professionals

Focusing on Emotions:
Transdiagnostic Approach to Treating Complex Eating Disorders

Presented by: Gayle Brooks, PhD, Vice President & Chief Clinical Officer for The Renfrew Center
& Melanie Smith, LMHC, Director of Training for The Renfrew Center

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.
