At the NEDA conference last week, we were ecstatic to be presented with one of the two Feeding Hope $100,000 research grants. This grant will fund our research on the use of Family-Based Therapy (FBT) for adults with anorexia in our 5-day Adult Intensive Family Therapy program. We are so honored to be able to carry out this research in the effort to find more effective treatments for adults with eating disorders. http://ow.ly/DqyqN

October has been a whirlwind month...just as we wrapped up our conference last week, several of our staff jumped on a flight to San Antonio, TX for the #NEDA2014 Conference. This morning, Dr. Stephanie Knatz, Dr. Roxanne Rockwell and parent mentor Jennifer Denise Ouellette spoke about the effectiveness of our 5-day Intensive Family Therapy (IFT) program.

Don't forget - our next adolescent IFT is less than 2 weeks away on October 27-31 and our adult IFT will take place on November 17-21. http://ow.ly/i/7ghVv

#StaffSpotlight We would like to introduce to you Dr. Jacquie Corvan, who recently joined our team as a postdoctoral fellow. She graduated from the School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at Central Washington University at the Student Medical and Counseling Clinic where she provided individual and group psychotherapies to a variety of presenting problems ranging in severity. Before her internship she was a practicum student on the Medical Behavioral Unit at Rady Children’s Hospital and provided individual, family, and group therapy for eating disorder patients and pediatric patients. Her research interests include prevention and interventions for weight related conditions, family based interventions, and incorporating evidence based treatments within medical settings.
