Integrated Care For Eating Disorders & Substance Use

This free One-Day Workshop for MHSU & MCFD Clinical Staff are invited for an innovative workshop focused on an integrated approach to treating both Eating Disorders and Substance Use. This workshop will increase participant’s confidence in creating a new collaborative system of care. This education is targeted to those working in substance use programs and in general mental health, both in adult and youth services. This workshop will focus on giving clinicians a basic knowledge of and screening for eating disorders, and an understanding of the need for integrated treatment for concurrent issues. We will also introduce participants to Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT). This modality helps clients build their emotional self-efficacy and increase their supports through healing connection.
