19th Annual Columbia River Eating Disorder Network Conference

Gender, Body and Sport in Eating Disorders:
Diverse Perspectives on Treatment from the Edge

Saturday, February 27, 2016, 9 a.m.- 4 p.m., Lewis & Clark College, Templeton Center, Stamm


This year’s CREDN conference builds upon themes from previous years, with a focus on the diversity of our patient population. Internationally-recognized leaders, researchers, and clinicians will share their research and accumulated wisdom working across the spectrum of patients struggling with eating disorders. Rather than a single treatment modality or specialty focus, this year’s program seeks to provide a broad range of topics that reflect the increasing stratification and heterogeneity of the eating disordered population.   

Topics explored will include focus issues related to treating males, transgender people, and athletes. Special sessions will focus on front-line approaches for school-based interventions for students, as well as updates on working with individuals with obesity, and the use of yoga as a core component of body-based treatments for eating disorders.

It is our goal that attendees leave with a deepened understanding of the various sub-cultures within the eating disordered population, and can bring new sensitivity and awareness to their clinical practice.
