Nancy Albus Speaks in Nashville

Nancy AlbusNancy Albus, Chief Executive Officer of Castlewood Treatment Centers spoke at the Nashville Psychotherapy Institute this past Friday May 10, 2013. The Nashville Psychotherapy Institute (NPI) hosts lunch and learn continuing education workshops throughout the year to provide continuing education to clinicians in the Nashville area. This prestigious group developed in the 1980's out of a need for clinicians to gain quality continuing education as well as network with other clinicians. NPI also hosts an one day conference annually in February. Ms. Albus was thrilled to be asked to participate in NPI's lunch and learn program and lecture to the clinicians. Her lecture was titled "Sexuality & Relationships in the Treatment of Eating Disorders." Ms. Albus discussed the treatment of sexuality when working with clients with eating disorders. She included ways to assess clients for issues with intimacy and relationships as well as intervention strategies related to relationships, intimacy, sexual compulsivity and sexual aversion.  The lectured focused on practical learning tools and case examples in order to help participants put these tools to use in their practice.
