Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2009 -- Shoreline Center for Eating Disorder Treatment, the only Long Beach facility dedicated to treating anorexia and bulimia nervosa, is one of the sponsors of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals Annual Symposium to be held March 4-8 in Long Beach, CA. Shoreline Center, a leader in the field of eating disorder treatment, offers a variety of treatment programs for this serious, complex and life threatening illness. The conference of 300 professionals from around the world, meets in Long Beach, and follows Eating Disorder Awareness Week (February 22-28), which is held each year to raise consciousness across the country about the potentially life-threatening seriousness of eating disorders and the societal pressures, attitudes and behaviors which contribute to them.

"We are pleased that this important conference is being held locally because it will highlight the dangers of Eating Disorders as well as the number of people afflicted right here in Long Beach. It adds emphasis to the need for appropriate treatment right in our backyard," said Rachel Levi, MFT, CEDS and founder of Shoreline Center for Eating Disorder Treatment.

At this conference, leading eating disorders experts and distinguished faculty will present cutting edge interventions, protocols and research to over 300 multi-disciplinary clinicians. The International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp) Symposium has titled their conference "Reclaiming the Body: Attachment, Somatics, and Image", and it is being held at the Westin Hotel, in Long Beach, California.

This year's iaedp Symposium offers participants the opportunity to choose from nearly 40 sessions presented by a distinguished faculty selected through a rigorous peer review process. Our objectives are for participants to be able to: (1) identify and treat individuals with anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating; (2) discuss drug therapies currently used to treat eating disorders; (3) describe alternative methods for the treatment of eating disorders, such as dialectical behavior therapy, psychodrama, movement therapy, art therapy, and gastric bypass surgery and (4) explain dual diagnosis issues, such as post traumatic stress disorder.
