RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 16, 2013 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that it will host an educational, winter workshop in conjunction with the Eating Recovery Center, a fully accredited behavioral hospital that specializes in providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and other eating disorders, on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014.

The event, which is expected to draw more than 200 people from across the southeast region, will offer four CE credit hours and an opportunity to network with fellow eating disorders treatment colleagues. Presentations will explore the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in the treatment of eating disorders and will be led by experienced professionals, Emmett Bishop, MD, FAED, CEDS and Bonnie Brennan, MA, LPC.

“We are excited to be hosting one of the leaders in the treatment of eating disorders, Eating Recovery Center, on our campus for an educational workshop,” said Nicole Davis, Coordinator of Counseling & Disability Services for WPU.

“Professionals from the southeast are coming together to learn how we can effectively treat individuals struggling with eating disorders and help move them towards healing and wholeness. As a university counselor, I am especially excited about learning more about the ACT model for the treatment of eating disorders as an alarmingly high number of college-aged students exhibit behaviors indicative of an eating disorder. ”

The workshop will be held in Kenan Auditorium from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission is $25 per person and is due on or before January 20. Payment by cash or check may be mailed to: Nicole Davis, 15 East Peace Street, Raleigh, NC 27604. For a detailed schedule and more information on how to register, please click here.
