The Alliance at The White House
 
On September 14, The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness joined members of the eating disorders community and met with politically appointed and professional staff from the White House, U.S. Department of Labor, National Institute for Mental Health, Center for Medicaid & Medicare Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Health Resources and Services Administration, and the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight to discuss further partnership and collaboration to help people with eating disorders in the areas of mental health parity compliance, early identification, and research. The eating disorders community members included representatives of the Eating Disorders Coalition, National Eating Disorders Association, Binge Eating Disorder Association, Academy for Eating Disorders, Residential Eating Disorders Consortium, The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness, and other members of academia.
 
The meeting marked the first steps of beneficial collaborations amongst the agencies and the eating disorders community. Issues discussed related to mental health parity, medical necessity, nonquantitative treatment limitations and transparency; early identification for the public, doctors, school personnel and health insurance providers; and the need for further research to help advance eating disorders treatment and early identification. Going forward, the eating disorders community is excited to continue these partnerships and forge a path for mental health parity, early identification, and research relating to eating disorders.

26th Annual Renfrew Foundation Conference

 

The 26th Annual Renfrew Foundation Conference for Professionals.  Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Eating Disorders Across the Lifespan and In Diverse Populations. November 11 - 13, 2016 at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott.  The manifestations of eating disorders can appear at any point throughout the lifespan. When they occur during developmental transitions, one's vulnerability is often increased. Age, size, ethnicity, race, genetics, ability, class, gender, religion, sexual orientation or identity, singly or in any combination, also may contribute to the risk of developing the illness. Conference 2016 will examine these features as well as the influence of maladaptive attachment, the impact of trauma and the marginalization of self – all of which may keep clients stuck and unable to identify or access potential pathways towards healing and recovery. We will further explore, through a feminist relational lens, the way in which intersecting forms of oppression may affect the development and treatment of eating disorders.  For more information or to register please visit www.renfrewconference.com
