Description of Presentation:

This presentation will analyze the key concepts that patients reported enabled them to recover from their eating disorder. The presentation will address the main obstacles that hindered the recovery process for patients and the steps necessary to overcome these barriers. Forty-eight women that previously received inpatient or residential care and now self-reported that they were recovered from an eating disorder completed a survey on the key obstacles and barriers that kept then stuck in their eating disorder and they also identified the critical factors and behavioral changes that enabled them to recover. This presentation will present nine critical factors of success that patients attributed to assisting in their recovery. Eight key obstacles and barriers to recovery will also be discussed and therapeutic interventions will be presented to assist therapists on helping patients overcome these obstacles on an outpatient basis. A personal story of recovery will be presented that includes video footage of the patient in the depths of her eating disorder over sixteen years ago and then video footage of her in recovery. Co-presenter will discuss her personal story of recovery and the key factors that enabled her to move past the eating disorder and live a full life.
