In April, I had the privilege of attending the 22nd annual International Conference on Eating Disorders in Boston. It's an amazing opportunity to learn about the latest happenings in eating disorder treatment and research to better care for our patients.
Throughout June we will be hosting Eating Disorders and the Brain. This is a free CE event for professionals who want to learn more about eating disorders and/or how to address eating disorders in your work with patients.

Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening conditions that require appropriate care and management by a team of mental health and medical professionals. This session will provide an understanding of the multidimensional nature of eating disorder development and maintenance, challenges related to recovery, and communication techniques to help approach someone who may be struggling. The session will also address the diverse range of people that eating disorders impact and how personalized treatment is effective in managing individual needs.

What is the best treatment at any given time when recovering from an eating disorder? This is one of the great questions providers, clients, and families alike struggle to answer.
We know there are significant scientifically based therapies that deliver positive outcomes, including weight restoration and behavior cessation. In fact, The Emily Program incorporates these therapies in our programs — Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Family-Based Therapy — and has experienced much success through them.
Having said that, however, we also know that many clients who are able to cease behaviors and achieve weight restoration may continue to experience physiological distress, urges, body dissatisfaction, and anxiety, among other eating disorder symptoms.
Further complicating the issue, eating disorders often occur in secret and many clients may not reveal the intensity of their behaviors, thoughts and feelings during treatment.
