Beyond FBT: Expanding Our Definition of  “Family” to Promote & Protect Eating Disorder Recovery

Summary 

Because eating disorders often thrive in isolation, recovery can be facilitated by attachment and connection. Yet in many cases, those surrounding the individual with an eating disorder have their own wounds, both related and unrelated to the disease, and also deserve the support and resources needed to heal. For many of our patients, “family of origin” or “nuclear family” are unfamiliar concepts that have been replaced by “families of choice,” including romantic partners, roommates, step-families, foster parents, co-workers,  sponsors, peers, and others. This presentation will discuss how to engage the key players in each patient’s larger community and how to enlist them in supporting recovery, even when they are not physically present. 

Objectives

  • Explain the importance of a social support system in treatment and recovery protection, and adapt treatment models that were developed for use with a nuclear family to the current reality of co-habitants, adult children, step-families, siblings, co-workers, sponsors, roommates, teammates, and others. 
  • Address the fears of conflict that motivate us as professionals to resist reaching out to families, and describe how our courage in the face of potential rejection can role-model recovery for our patients. 
  • Describe strategies for interacting with family members who are discouraged, resistant, angry or not physically present and explain why this contributes to recovery.

Untangling Complexities in the Treatment of Athletes with Eating Disorders

Summary

Eating disorders are a complex and multifaceted psychiatric illness, requiring specific attunement and knowledge to effectively address particularly when it occurs within the sport environment.  Providers need to be especially sensitive and responsive to some frequent challenges when working with athletes during eating disorder treatment.  This presentation will overview best practices to identify and treat athletes with disordered eating and unbalanced exercise.  Recommendations will be discussed specific to coordinating care with an athlete’s sport family and considerations will be given for integrating sport training into an athlete’s treatment.

  • Anticipate and respond to specific challenges that both athletes and providers are likely to encounter across levels of care.
  • Recognize and implement specific treatment targets and interventions to support and facilitate an athlete’s eating disorder treatment.

ACT Informed Therapy: Incorporating Experiential Techniques into the Treatment of Eating Disorders

Summary

This training will focus on how the mind can both distract clients and practitioners from engaging in the present moment. Clients suffering from eating disorders typically present with obsessive focus on weight, shape, and size along maladaptive behaviors that impact their physical health and emotional wellbeing. Clients can also experience disconnection in their interpersonal relationships as the struggle to be “in the moment”. We will explore though acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) ways to contact the present moment and defuse from difficult thoughts and unworkable actions.
Mindfulness and acceptance are broad topics that are sometimes misunderstood. Though the course of this presentation we will define what mindfulness and acceptance and how they can be practically applied to eating disorder treatment. Mindfulness based approaches including those used in (ACT) have been shown to be effective with those struggling with body image issues, maladaptive eating patterns, and compensatory behaviors. Using (ACT) techniques attendees will gain an understanding of the ways our mind bombards us with unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and memories and how we can minimize the impact on our lives and connect with our values.

This presentation is not only geared towards work with clients, it will also review how the practitioner can be just as susceptible to “unhelpful” thoughts and the impact it can have on the therapeutic relationship if not addressed. This presentation will be interactive and include experiential activities that can be used in individual and group sessions to cultivate mindfulness, practice defusion, and engaging in action that is value based.

Objectives

  • Participants will be able to define experiential avoidance and valued living and how to differentiate between the two.
  • Participants will be able to identify and explain the six core processes of acceptance and commitment therapy and how they relate to clients and practitioners.
  • Participants of this presentation will learn to use two defusion techniques as well as two mindfulness techniques to use with clients.
  • Participants will be able to conceptualize body image as both a cause and consequence of experiential avoidance.

First Do No Harm: Ethical Considerations in Treating Eating Disorders

Summary

As patients transition out of a higher level of care or try to avoid going to treatment, there are often many questions that outpatient teams face, including:
“How do I know my client is safe for me to continue to manage in the outpatient setting?”
“How do I find a physician knowledgable about eating disorders or communicate with the existing physician about my concerns?”
“What are the ethical considerations of tele-health for individuals with eating disorders?”
“How do I manage issues not showing up on a blood test or imaging study?”
“How do I use signs of body suffering to break through denial?”
“When is a palliative approach indicated for care?”
“Where does harm exist in the eating disorder and medical treatment model, and how can we offer more ethical, whole-person care?”
This 90 minute presentation will look at ethical and social justice issues existing in the eating disorder treatment model including telemedicine, palliative care, care of the LGBTQ+ population, and weight inclusive care.

Objectives

By the end of the presentation, attendees will:

  • Discuss telemedicine care as it is evolving for those with eating disorders
  • Discuss the ethical considerations of palliative care for individuals with eating disorders.
  • Identify symptoms of both measurable and unmeasurable medical issues that pertain to outpatients with eating disorders.
  • Feel confident recognizing appropriate (and inappropriate) workup and management of these issues as a therapist or dietitian, keeping an eye on whether patient’s medical problems are being adequately addressed, or as a provider seeking to take better care of this patient population directly.
  • Communicate findings and contextualize medical issues effectively to optimize the recovery process, whether on an ongoing basis as an outpatient provider, or in referral to a higher level of care.
  • Understand better practices for patients traditionally underserved in eating disorder care models
