People do not define beauty.
Looks do not define beauty.
You define beauty.

The Emily Program and The Retreat have partnered to present "Exploring Positive Body Image." CEUs are available for LADC and Social Workers.
When: September 17 from 8:00-10:30 AM
Where: The Retreat, Wayzata, MN
While addressing addiction, providers often find themselves addressing co-occurring body image concerns and disordered eating behavior. This workshop will explore and offer suggestions for promoting positive body image and self-esteem, while encouraging optimal health and well-being through joyful activity, nutrition and self-care.
Dr. Jillian Lampert, The Emily Program's senior director of business and community development, will discuss how providers can recognize and become more confident in addressing positive body image with clients dealing with co-occuring disorders.

A recent article by Dr. Russell Marx, The National Eating Disorder Association's chief science officer, discussed evidence based treatment. The article noted Harriet Brown's New York Times piece, which we have discussed in previous blogs, concerning why surprisingly few patients get evidence based care. Dr. Marx discusses the NICE guidelines, which is the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in the United Kingdom. What's particularly exciting about this article was that it noted the growing evidence for the efficacy of FBT and general family based interventions for clients with anorexia. The NICE guidelines are of significance specifically in the United Kingdom but are utilized worldwide in understanding evidence basis for eating disorder treatment. In the NICE guidelines Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is noted as a treatment well conducted with clinical studies for binge eating disorder, but is not included as a proven treatment for anorexia or bulimia. These guidelines were last completed in 2011 and will be reviewed again in 2014. It is our hope that recent studies on DBT will show the effectiveness of this treatment for other eating disorder diagnoses.
