By Pauline Powers, MD
In this advanced, clinical course, Dr. Powers provides a multidimensional view of the complexities of treating patients with eating disorders and co-morbid psychiatric disorders. Using actual cases and the treatment plans that were prescribed, she shows participants the effectiveness of various strategies that she has used by creating a unique combination of treatment techniques, integrative practices, and medication to fit each individual. She will share how she has utilized two structured interview methods (the MINI and MINI-KID) as well as a structured physiological evaluation tool to detect the potential presence of eating disorders and co-morbid conditions in clients. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
