Treating the ED Patient With An Endocrine Dysfunction
Roundtable Leader: Marilyn Cox, MSN, CDE, ADM with 20+ years as an expert in the treatment of pediatric endocrine diagnoses
Just like eating disorders, our traditional training teaches that endocrine disorders are rare. Revise that old thinking for once and for all. Nurse Practitioner Marilyn Cox, Jessica’s office-mate at her first RD job in the Children’s Medical Center Endocrine Clinic, shares details of the endocrine issues that often accompany EDs, what to look for, and what to recommend.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy - Tools For Treating EDs
Roundtable Leader: Beau Nelson, MA, LCSW, an expert in rational-emotive behavior therapy and other cognitive-behavioral techniques
The book "Life Without Ed" and some treatment centers teach our patients CBT without always giving it a name. Jessica calls it "rethinking" at Eating Disorders Boot Camp and we teach it to our patients to help them stay focused between sessions. Beau brings us to the next level - actually helping our patients understand how their thoughts and feelings interlock and guiding them away from their eating disorders by choosing new beliefs.
Eating Disorders And Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder -
More Alike Than Different
Roundtable Leader: Dr. Kim Rockwell-Evans, PhD, LPC, LMFT and an expert in treating anxiety disorders
Clearly our patients struggle with anxiety about food and eating, bodies and weight. Whether or not they are in treatment for a diagnosed anxiety disorder, we can use anxiety management and exposure therapy tactics to help them stay nourished. Kim is the guru in Dallas for treating OCD and will share the strategies that have helped Jessica transform her work with patients.
Applying Addiction Treatment Therapies To Eating Disorders
Roundtable Leader: Dr. Mark Bird, PhD, MSW, LMFT and expert in treating drug, alcohol and process addictions
Mention addiction to eating disorders professionals and immediately everyone thinks of 12-step programs and Overeaters Anonymous – and not necessarily in a good way. Mark Bird opened Jessica’s eyes to other addiction treatment strategies besides 12-step programs, and the value of these techniques for eating disorder recovery. Mark will share his strategies for overcoming guilt and shame, implementing (not just learning!) better coping skills, and relapse prevention.
