Presentation Tough-talk: Having Difficult Treatment Conversations with Patients and their Support System

There are many challenging conversations that arise during the treatment of eating disorders. Clinicians of all disciplines must develop the ability to manage these difficult conversations in an honest, transparent, and nuanced manner. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to work with a multidisciplinary panel of experts to work through typical questions encountered during eating disorders care. Disciplines include psychotherapy, psychiatry, primary medicine, and nutrition. In addition, participants will work through material from case studies and their own practices to enhance this important skill set.
