This program has been Approved by the National Association of Social Workers (Approval #886650943-2353) for 3 [Social Work] continuing education contact hours.


Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical conditions that can have life-threatening consequences. Researchers are finding that EDO’s are caused by a complex combination of psychological, neurobiological, social, genetic, and behavioral factors. EDO’s are best treated with a multi-disciplinary team. This workshop will highlight the medical and nutritional complications of eating disorders and will compare the different treatment philosophies and level of care options available.
 

Participants will learn about how to:

  1. Define Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and Eating Disorder NOS as updated in the DSM V
  2. Describe the medical complications of eating disorders
  3. Articulate the role of the registered dietitian and psychologist in the treatment of eating disorders
  4. Compare the various treatment options based on both the client’s and family’s needs (CBT, DBT psychodynamic, FBT, MI)
  5. Determine the best level of care based on current symptoms (outpatient, IOP, day treatment, residential, medical hospitalization)

Presenters:

Elizabeth Davenport, MPH, RD, LD
Jean Gearon, PhD
Sandra Pinney, MS, RD, LD

Cultural Neuropsychology

CEUs: 3 CEUs for psychologists only. 

 Time: Workshop 1:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Our brains are dynamic – changing up to 200 times a second. What does that mean for our lives and our cultural perceptions and experiences? In this workshop we’ll explore the neurological and psychological ramifications of culture – what we derive from our cultural heritages and how our thoughts and experiences change culture and our brains. We’ll start with a conceptual framework of some of the latest scientific research including: neuroplasticity, epigenetics, brain self-organization, the default mode, neurological images of achievement, equivalence, and language nuances. Examples will be given of varying world views, concepts of time and space, perceptions, expectations, relationships, non-verbal behavior and cultural cues. Finally, we’ll discuss how psychotherapy can change brains -- for better or for worse.

Participants will learn about how to:
  1. Participants will be able to define and explain the importance of neuroplasticity and epigenetics on our cultural learning and transactions.
  2. Participants will be able to challenge at least two popular assumptions about the “hard-wired brain.”
  3. Participants will be able to articulate 5 aspects of their own cultural learning that they may not have realized prior to the workshop.
  4. Participants will be able to identify 10 examples of differing world views, concepts of time, and non-verbal behavior.
  5. Participants will be able to list 5 examples of changes in brain architecture based on personal thoughts and experiences.
  6. Participants will be able to discuss the research about “brain prints.”
  7. Participants will be able to list 5 examples of effective, healing psychotherapeutic practices.
