The UC San Diego Eating Disorders Center for Treatment & Research is hosting its third annual conference Feb. 25-26 in San Diego. The 2016 conference is focused on Integrated Treatment of Substance Abuse and Eating Disorders. One of three people struggling with substance abuse also reports eating pathology, and up to half of all individuals struggling with eating disorders meet criteria for substance abuse. While the research suggests improved outcomes when eating disorders and substance abuse are treated concurrently, remarkably few people in either field are fully trained to address BOTH disorders. The conference will bring together substance abuse clinicians and eating disorder clinicians so that we can learn, from each other and a panel of experts, how to best help the millions of individuals struggling with these co-occurring disorders.  The conference offers practical talks and experiential training workshops, preparing clinicians with tools they can immediately apply in their practices. Presenters include Dr. Ken Resnicow leading a Motivational Interviewing workshop, Dr. Seth Axelrod leading a workshop on DBT for co-occurring disorders, and Drs. Amy Baker Dennis and Tamara Pryor discussing integrated treatment for eating disorders and substance abuse.  Mentor round-table lunches and networking dinners are included.
