The 28th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals

Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Cultivating Hope in an Age of Disconnection

NOVEMBER 9 - 11, 2018
Philadelphia Airport Marriott
17.5 CEs/CMEs Offered

Many eating disorder clients are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety in a polarized society where anger, prejudice, loss of civility, bullying and threats to personal safety create an atmosphere of distrust and disconnection.  Practitioners are tasked with helping clients navigate their way through emotionally-charged times by providing them with optimism, prompting dialogue that supports diverse needs and creating a sense of community. Conference 2018 will focus on evidence-based strategies, clinically relevant research and development of skills for building resilience.
