Presentation Descriptions:

“12 Core Principles in Treatment and Recovery from Eating Disorders and Related Illness”
Presented by Michael E. Berrett, PhD, CEDS
This workshop will address 12 core areas which are critical in the treatment process and the pathway to recovery from an eating disorder and related emotional, mental, and addictive illness. It will address critical topics including: finding reasons for recovery, accountability, embracing feelings, separating person from illness, creating structure, social support, listening to heart, reconnection, avoidance, identity, and love – and the role of each in treatment and recovery. Each critical area will be examined at the level of principles, themes, and clinical intervention.

“Eating Disorders & Type 1 Diabetes: A Complicated Relationship”
Presented by Quinn Nystrom
Living with type 1 diabetes is complicated enough, but then throw in a dual diagnosis of an eating disorder, and the management of the two becomes tricky. Eating disorders paired with diabetes can be a life-threatening combination. Learn about Quinn’s personal journey of seeking recovery, and how healthcare professionals can help guide and support their patients who present with both a chronic illness and an eating disorder.
