Join us virtually for the annual South Texas Eating Disorder education event. Earn up to 6.5 CEUs at this day-long workshop, network with other clinicians, and hear successes of long-term recovered individuals!
Our Clinical Director and CEO, Susan C. Mengden, PhD, CEDS and iaedp Approved Supervisor, will be presenting on “Utilizing DBT with Adolescents and Their Families in the Treatment of Eating Disorders”  

Great news – you do not have to attend the Symposium on the day scheduled to receive your credits…but you do have to sign up beforehand.   You then will have 30 days following the Symposium to watch the presentations and get your CEU’s.

At Esperanza Eating Disorders Center, our goal is to provide a supportive, empowering environment for eating disorder recovery.  Our team of experienced multidisciplinary clinicians utilize evidence-based treatment approaches to provide individuals with a wide range of skills and healthy coping behaviors to guide them to a life of fulfilling recovery. 

Our cornerstone philosophy is Recovery by Doing. Patients do not just hear about what to do, they get hands-on experience doing recovery. Integrative therapies as well as grocery shopping, cooking and plating their own meals and activities like restaurant outings are all part of our hands-on approach to healing.  

We look forward to doing recovery with families and professionals in the South Texas community.

With Shared Hope,
