Pekin, IL (PRWEB) December 01, 2016
According to a recent report from the American Academy of Pediatrics, early intervention is crucial to long-term recovery for patients with eating disorders, which is why the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp.com) provides preconference training workshops just prior to the opening of its 2017 Symposium at the Green Valley Resort and Spa in Las Vegas.
The preconference trainings consist of two workshops are part of a six-hour program that provides useful, practical training for medical professionals who do not specialize in eating disorders, but are often the first medical professional to see the signs and symptoms that their patients are suffering with disordered eating.
At the 2017 iaedp Symposium, Douglas W. Bunnell, PhD, FAED, CEDS and Keesha Broome will present “Beyond the Basics: Supervision, Mentorship and Fostering Clinical Wisdom,” and John Levitt, PhD will offer “Connections: Developing an Evidence-Based Relationship with the Chronically Relapsing Client.” Each of the presenters is well known in the field of eating disorder treatment and offers years of research and clinical experience.
During their careers, many medical professionals come across patients struggling with eating disorders and related problems. Since patients are more likely to recover when disordered eating is detected and treated early, the iaedp Symposium preconference trainings are specifically designed to teach psychiatrists, primary care physicians, residents, medical students, nurses and insurance providers how to recognize, evaluate and mobilize the resources needed to treat patients with eating disorders across the spectrum of ages, scenarios and with varying degrees of malnutrition and medical comorbidity and necessity.
The preconference trainings are offered on March 22 as a separate track for an additional $75 each. For more information about early registration, go to: http://www.iaedp.com.
