Introduction
The UPMC Center for Eating Disorders is proud to present their first day-long conference. The conference will consist of presentations on topics for professionals who work with individuals with eating disorders. This will consist of discussion of diagnosis of eating disorders in different populations and best practice treatment modalities that are evidence informed.

We will start with an overview of eating disorders, diagnostic criteria, and epidemiology. Throughout the day, there will be presentations focusing on four different populations commonly encountered by providers. These include patients with Binge Eating Disorder, Severe and Enduring Anorexia Nervosa, eating disorders and comorbidities, and children and adolescents with eating disorders. We will use case presentations and panels to explore the challenges of implementing treatment in various settings.  

Participants should leave the conference with a greater understanding of the multitude of issues surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders across the lifespan.

Who Should Attend
The conference is designed to present the latest research and clinical knowledge regarding eating disorders to a professional audience: psychologists, mental health clinicians, nurses, social workers, dieticians, and psychiatrists; service coordinators, researchers, mental health policy administrators and others who intend to keep current regarding etiology, treatment, and research related to eating disorders across the lifespan.

Conference Objectives
At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:

• Describe the diagnostic criteria and evidence base for Binge Eating Disorder
• Discuss diagnostic and treatment challenges associated with Severe and Enduring Anorexia Nervosa
• Identify three key considerations when working with patients with eating disorders and comorbidities
• Describe the use of Family Based Therapy for treatment of children and adolescents with eating disorders
