Eating disorders are a pervasive problem and have been shown to have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric condition, yet maintaining positive treatment outcomes is often a challenge. The reasons for this are varied, including but not limited to, the ego syntonic nature of the illness, poor insurance coverage for effective treatment that follows best practice treatment guidelines, and poor recognition of early indications of the problem. Neuroscience, though, is beginning to shed some new light on the underlying brain mechanisms associated with eating disorders.  In this workshop we will review the existing findings related to the neurobiology of eating disorders.  We will also discuss how these findings can be applied to treatment in order to improve outcomes in this challenging population.  Particular attention will be paid to recently developed quantitative EEG findings and their meaning for patients with eating disorders and how EEG biofeedback can be incorporated into treatment to help alter the underlying neurophysiology. 

Coffee, bottled water & light refreshments provided in the morning & afternoon. Lunch on your own. 

Presenter Bio: Dr. Ed Hamlin is a psychologist and the Clinical Director of the Institute for Applied Neuroscience in Asheville, North Carolina. He has taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and at Duke University. He currently holds an adjunct faculty position as Professor at Western Carolina University and associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina Medical Center. In addition to his clinical work, he conducts research and presents workshops regarding applied neuroscience and brain/mind relationships. He serves as a consultant and supervisor for the clinical staff at a number of facilities throughout the world. He has practiced neurofeedback and applied psychophysiology since the mid-1980s and has taught and utilized these techniques in a variety of settings. He has a particular interest in neuroplasticity and the potential for changing maladaptive brain organization patterns. His research projects involve examining the impact of early abuse and neglect on the developing brain and how to correct maladaptive patterns as well as a major collaborative research study with Avalon Hills into dysfunctional brain patters in patients with eating disorders.

Summit Eating Disorders & Outreach Programs

 

Summit Eating Disorders and Outreach Program events on Fri Oct 25, 2013:

8:15-11:00 AM Alumni Event w/ Tom & Doris Smeltzer at 3610 American River Dr., Ste 140, Sacramento, CA

11:30-1:00 PM  Professional Lunch & Learn Series at Arden Hills Country Club, 1220 Arden Hills Lane, Sacramento, CA 

Join Summit Eating Disorders and Outreach Program for the latest in its complimentary Lunch & Learn series, providing a free 1 CE presentation and opportunity to network with area eating disorders professionals over the lunch hour.

Summit is pleased to welcome nationally-recognized guest speaker, Doris Smeltzer, founder of the Andrea’s Voice Foundation, who will share her compelling personal story of her teenage daughter’s tragic death from medical complications stemming from 13 months of bulimia. Teaming with Summit’s Medical Director, Anna Vinter, MD, Smeltzer will discuss the importance of medical management in the prevention and treatment of eating disorders, while Dr. Vinter will explore a “common language” understanding of survival physiology and how individuals survive eating disorder behaviors. These key medical principles can—and should—be in the dialogue of all disciplines working with patients and families who struggle with eating disorders, not just physicians.
