--Adolescent program parent
By Dr. Mark Warren
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. If you’re going to be at the conference, please stop by and see our posters. If you’re not attending the conference, F.E.A.S.T. will be blogging the conference live on their website, please check it out and get involved.
