Judith Ruskay Rabinor, Keynote speaker at the 24th Annual Renfrew Center Foundation Conference, November 14-16, 2014, Philadelphia Airport Marriott, PA.
Judith Ruskay Rabinor, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist, author, consultant and psychotherapist with offices in New York City and Lido Beach, Long Island. A longtime expert in treating eating and body image disorders (since the mid 1970’s), Judy now also specializes in working with divorcing families.
Her private practice is devoted to working with individuals, groups and families as well as conducting consultation/study groups for mental health professionals. Her two seemingly different specialties are seamlessly woven together by her commitment to the power of relationship to heal. “People come to my office when they have run out of steam and feel lost,” she says. Whether working with troubled couples and families or dealing with bulimia or binge eating, her goal is to help help people develop relationships with themselves and others which bring meaning, vitality and aliveness into their lives.
She is the author dozens of articles, chapters and two books, A Starving Madness: Tales of Hunger, Hope and Healing in Psychotherapy (Gurze Books, 2002) and Befriending Your Ex After Divorce: Making Life Better for You Your Kids and Yes Your Ex (New Harbinger Publications, 2013).
She blogs forThe Huffington Post and Psychology Today, is a consultant to The Renfrew Center Foundation, a supervisor at the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia and a sought after presenter, workshop leader and media expert. Judy is currently working on a book on mothers and daughters.
