The Renfrew Center Foundation 24th Annual Conference

Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: The “Practice” of Practice

Time: 9:00am–5:00pm
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Venue: Philadelphia Airport Marriott

Effective treatment of eating disorders is both an art and a science. Yet there remains a gap between what research offers and what clients require. Clinicians are caught in a murky middle, making one critical decision after another – while continually managing their innermost feelings and fears.

The “Practice” of Practice explores how eating disorder clinicians actually “mind the gap,” incorporating new approaches and research findings – all as they respond in real times, with real lives, in their offices each day. Dr. Judith Brisman will be presenting with Dr.Roger McFillin on the topic of CBT and Psychodynamic Treatment: Can we put down our Swords?
