The purpose of the Institute is to disseminate evidence based treatments for child and adolescent eating disorders. No current strategies are available for clinicians wishing to have such training in a systematic and quality-controlled manner. In addition, the Institute will help provide both insurers and families with information about family based treatment and the skills mastered by clinicians.
The Institute provides several levels of training for interested clinicians.
Basic introduction to key intervention models
Specific training in key models
Certification for treatment in key models
Certification to provide advanced training of treatment in key models
Training in incorporating evidence-based treatment models for child and adolescent eating disorder in clinical services and program development
Our next workshop will be in the Bay Area in late February/early March 2019. Details available soon; please check back.
