The Renfrew CenterPHILADELPHIA , USA Visit the Venue to read more
The Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference for Professionals has been recognized as one of the premier eating disorders conferences in the country since it first convened in 1991. Held every Fall in Philadelphia, the Conference hosts hundreds of professionals from around the United States and abroad, providing a forum for in-depth exploration of clinical practice, in addition to presentation of pertinent data and information in the eating disorders field. Workshops are presented by the top leaders in the field and extensive networking opportunities are available throughout the 3-day event. The unique spirit of the Conference creates a sense of community and respect, which allows professionals to talk honestly about what they do, say and feel when treating patients with eating disorders.
History of The Renfrew Center Foundation Conference from Conference Chair, Judi Goldstein
Being a highly effective eating disorder therapist is a process, not a destination. As our patient population has become increasingly more complex and diverse, research has provided us with a growing body of evidence-based practices (EBPs). As a result, clinicians now face the daunting task of mastering new, cutting edge treatment approaches and integrating them into our well established and uniquely nuanced practices. In order to provide the quality of care our patients require and deserve, we must evolve along with the field.
Conference 2017 will examine the challenge of learning new skills at different points in the professional “lifespan”. These can include the incorporation of innovative therapeutic approaches and evidence-based practices, the integration of clinical intuition, creativity and wisdom, as well as the critical role of supervision.
