"Eating Disorders" will be presented by Carl Christensen, MD, Ph.D., Addictionologist; and Lori Perpich, LLP, MS Clinical Behavioral Psychology; Cognitive Behavior Therapist and EDEN Program Facilitator. This program will examine the evidence that eating disorders are true biopsychosocial diseases, similar to chemical dependency. The program will define various eating disorders and their consequences, explore neurobiological theories of addiction, describe physiological consequences of eating disorders, discuss screening tools, and provide information on treatment options and resources for eating disorders. This program is part of the FREE annual Dawn Farm Education Series. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services.

One of the biggest complaints about developing a networking practice is "It takes too much time/money".In truth, most people are just plain inefficient in their networking behavior.- They attend too many events.- They belong to too many groups.- They don't know what they do or who they serve...- ...and they are surprised when no one helps them succeed.Behind all of these failures is an underlying failure to focus their efforts. They take a scattershot approach to networking, when instead they should be focused like a laser scalpel.Over the course of this workshop attendees will learn the process to...- ...narrow their target market -- and know the words to avoid when describing it.- ...develop the list of emotional reasons their clients choose them.- ...develop their personal story for why they do what they do (and why that is important).- ...give their referral partners the information they need to provide better connections and referrals.
