CCED is very happy to report that Cleveland will be having its first annual National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) walk on Saturday June 23 at 8:00 a.m. at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. This walk is organized by members of the eating disorder community along with NEDA. We are extremely pleased to be able to both sponsor and participate in the walk itself. We encourage everyone who is able to attend the walk, to donate to people who are walking, and to participate if they are able and medically cleared to do so. NEDA walks have become one of the primary ways of getting visibility for eating disorders nationwide. We congratulate those who have organized this walk and thank them for their efforts. We hope there will be a large and enthusiastic turnout for this very important event. To learn more about the walk and how you can participate please go to The National Eating Disorders webpage.

We’ve had a very busy year in 2011 and want to thank all of our blog readers for your support and interest. As the year comes to a close we hope this post finds everyone in good health and moving to new places of healing.At CCED we know that as new research emerges we must constantly change and evolve to provide the most up to date evidence based care. In the spirit of constant improvement we have made several additions to our programming in the last few months.As readers of this blog are aware, we are strong advocates and providers of Family Based Therapy (FBT). The literature supports a recovery rate in the 60-80% range and we continue work towards moving those numbers closer to 100%. We’ve started a program targeting those with co-morbid eating disorders and other psychiatric conditions including depression, self harm, and suicidally by utilizing Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in conjunction with family involvement. We hope to have more outcome data and research findings for this program in the upcoming year.Our adult DBT program continues to grow as we have added a day treatment program (DTP) in addition to the intensive outpatient program (IOP). The program compliments our existing DBT IOP and provides a second option for clients who may benefit from intensive DBT.Our group options for adults have also expanded. In addition to our traditional skills group we now offer a skills group focused on building a Life Worth Living for patients who are in therapy elsewhere, or who do not have a DBT therapist. We are also starting a Body Image Group for clients aged 17 and older on Monday January 16th. The group will be a 10 session closed group focusing on decreasing body dissatisfaction.For more information about any of the programs that we offer please contact (216) 765-0500 or Contact Us.In addition to new programming, we have several new staff this year. New to CCED we have Dani Goldstein, PC, Sarah Altman, PhD Post-doctoral trainee, Jill Matusek, PhD Post-doctoral trainee and Jean Doak, PhD. CCED also wants to congratulate Dean Malec and Stephanie Kinch on graduating from their masters programs!Finally, we’ve recently expanded our space by adding a third kitchen and dining room, along with a separate wing for adolescent treatment. With our new configuration each of our separate tracks have their own space in which to develop programming. As we enter 2012 we are excited about growth and the knowledge in the field of eating disorders, the health and well-being of patients and families, and with tremendous hope that all those affected by eating disorders will have a good and healthy new year.

Next week F.E.A.S.T. will be having its 2011 conference in Arlington, VA. This important event will allow families and professionals to gather to discuss Family Based Treatment (FBT), current practice, clinical and biological research, and new directions for the field. The keynote speaker will be Thomas Insel, MD, the director of the National Institute of Health. His presence will not only be extraordinary opportunity to hear a true leader in the field but also represents the important shift towards treating eating disorders with evidence based therapy.
CCED is proud to be presenting two posters at the conference. The first involves working with multi-diagnostic clients using FBT combined with other therapies. The other poster presents the feasibility of utilizing FBT with children over age 18. We are proud to be represented by Dr. Jorey Beegun, our director of FBT, and Abby Scalise, a graduate student we have the pleasure of working with.

We are excited to tell you about a current publication by CCED’s Drs Anita Federici and Lucene Wisniewski in A Collaborative Approach to Eating Disorders edited by June Alexander and Janet Treasure. The article, titled "Integrating dialectical behavioral therapy and family-based treatment for multidiagnostic adolescent patients", gives a brief overview of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Family Based Therapy, along with a rational on why an integration of these two treatment modalities may be beneficial for multi-diagnostic adolescents. The article suggests that a collaboration between FBT and DBT therapies will help historically difficult to treat adolescents manage self-injurious behaviors (eating disorder and otherwise) by focusing largely on emotion regulation in the midst of participating in an FBT model. Furthermore, a focus on radical acceptance of the current treatment plan and a balance between change and validation serve to help the adolescent and their family decrease blame and increase a non-judgmental stance throughout the recovery process. Research is currently being conducted at CCED on the effectiveness of the integration of these two models.
For more information please read Federici, A. & Wisniewski, L. (2012). Integrating dialectical behavioral therapy and family-based treatment for multidiagnostic adolescent patients. In Alexander, J. & Treasure, J. (Eds.), A collaborative approach to eating disorders (177-188). New York: Routledge.
