Program Overview 
The West Virginia Eating Disorder Network was developed in the summer of 2013 to provide a forum for providers of all disciplines to better understand and treat the complex challenges faced by clients with eating disorders. This conference is designed to review state-of-the-art clinical concepts and treatment considerations for individuals with disordered eating. It will also provide ample time for networking with other providers and treatment centers. Health providers including Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Licensed Professional Counselors, Social Workers, Nurses, Registered Dietitians, Addiction Counselors and other  interested professionals and students are invited to attend. There are no pre requisites. 
 
Special note for 2016 Conference Programming -  We have chosen to cluster the presentations into two groups: those strictly related to evidence based foundations of assessments and interventions, emerging research, and clinical techniques (morning session), and then those presentations that have interest to a broader audience including family members of patients with eating disorders (afternoon session).  The morning sessions are therefore directed at eating disorder professionals, and the afternoon sessions to both professionals and family members. Lunch is included in all registrations.
