The Great Give 2017
 
 
On Wednesday, May 17, 2017, from midnight to midnight, The Alliance is participating in the Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties. This community-wide event celebrates the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our community while raising critical funds. Plus, each donation made during the 24-hour period will be amplified by bonus pool dollars and hourly prizes!
 
This year, we hope to raise enough funds to create a free support group for those struggling outside of Palm Beach County, as well as add another free support group at our office.
Please help us help others battling eating disorders.  Together we can make a difference! 
 
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 27th Annual Renfrew Foundation Conference for Professionals.  Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Integrating Science, Creativity and Clinical Wisdom. November 10 - 12, 2017 at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott. Being a highly effective eating disorder therapist is a process, not a destination. As our patient population has become increasingly more complex and diverse, research has continued to add to the growing body of evidence-based practices (EBPs). Clinicians face the daunting task of mastering the new, cutting edge treatment approaches and integrating them into our well-established and uniquely nuanced practices. Conference 2017 will examine the challenge of learning new skills at different points in one's professional "lifespan". These can include the incorporation of innovative therapeutic approaches and evidence-based practices, the integration of clinical intuition, creativity and wisdom, as well as the critical role of supervision.
