Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Integrating Science, Creativity and Clinical Wisdom
NOVEMBER 10 – 12, 2017, Philadelphia Airport Marriott
The Renfrew Center Foundation Annual Conference will provide you with a front-row seat to the newest science and evidence-based practices for eating disorder treatment. Our workshops will help you determine how to integrate these new approaches into your own clinical practice and how to leverage the wisdom and intuition you’ve cultivated from real-world experience. As successful eating disorder professionals, we are always looking to improve our effectiveness. We understand the environment in which we practice is constantly changing and our patient population is changing too.
