Join us for The Emily Program – Cleveland's Open House on Tuesday, July 15, beginning at 5 p.m. The event will be held in Cleveland offices in Beachwood. Hors d'oeuvres will be served.
Come help us celebrate our partnership. Dirk Miller, CEO of The Emily Program, CCED's Mark Warren, newly appointed chief medical officer of The Emily Program, and CCED's Lucene Wisniewski, newly appointed chief clinical officer of The Emily Program, and other senior leadership of The Emily Program will be there. We would love to meet you and tell you about our future plans in Cleveland, including a new residential facility opening in 2015.
Following the open house and tours at 6 p.m., Dr. Jillian Lampert, chief development officer of The Emily Program and nationally renowned eating disorder expert, will present on "The Overlap Between Compulsive Overeating, Binge Eating and Obesity."
This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of the "what" and "what to do about it" regarding compulsive overeating and the new DSM-5 diagnosis, along with binge eating disorder and how eating disorders may interface with obesity.
Research indicates up to 30 percent of individuals seeking weight-loss services struggle with eating disorders, making these issues widely prevalent. This workshop will provide practical and useful techniques drawing from CBT and Mindful Eating.
Participants will walk away with the ability to identify and learn:
- three indicators that obesity may be linked to an eating disorder;
- the differences between obesity, Compulsive Overeating and Binge Eating Disorder for diagnostic purposes;
- at least two Mindful Eating therapeutic techniques to use in practice.
The complimentary presentation, offering 1.5 hours of continuing education, is open to community physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and professional counselors who interface with people struggling with weight-related issues or eating disorders.
We look forward to seeing you at the Open House and CEU.
