16th Annual Erin Leah Robarge Memorial Seminar Is Dec. 4

     Long-term sustainable recovery from an eating disorder involves many factors, and the seminar will focus on a variety of adjunctive therapies that can help individuals work toward full recovery.

Seminar Title: “Healing From the Inside Out.”

When: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 4.
Where: Radisson Hotel Corning.
For: Eating disorder professionals, patients, their families and the public.
Registration: $100 by Nov. 27. After Nov. 27, it is $125.
Carolyn Hodges Chaffee, owner and director of Upstate New York Eating Disorder Service, on the seminar topic: “While improved physical and psychological functioning may be the immediate goals of recovery for many with eating disorders, finding long-term, sustainable recovery often requires deeper self-exploration and healing. Seminar participants will consider what it means to define, work toward and reach full recovery.”
Dr. Edward P. Tyson
Keynote speaker:  Dr. Edward P. Tyson, MD, will present “Medical Management of the Eating Disorder Patient.” Dr. Tyson, a member of the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED), the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) and the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), will talk about the many challenges in medically managing patients.
Other speakers:
Jenna Milner, LMT, NCTMB, will discuss Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on-treatment that helps relieve pain, relax the body, quiet the mind, and support the health of the patient’s nervous system. Eating disorder patients have found it to be very beneficial in helping them move toward full recovery and improve their body image. 
Carolyn Hodges Chaffee, and Annika Kahm, MS, an eating disorder therapist in Connecticut, will discuss their upcoming book, “Measuring Health From the Inside.” The new book explains the importance of using two measurement techniques, Metabolic Testing and Body Composition Analysis, valuable tools in helping to assess and treat eating disorder patients.
Jen Parr Mutolo, LAc, of Ithaca, will discuss the effectiveness of acupuncture. Research shows it has measurable biological effects with eating disorder patients and those battling depression and anxiety.
