PEKIN, Ill. (PRWEB) October 16, 2018
The iaedp™ Foundation, recognized for excellence in first-quality education and training standards to an international multidisciplinary group of healthcare treatment providers who treat the full spectrum of eating disorder problems, will once again offer four core courses needed for certification in a live, two-day, 12-hour track at Symposium 2019. The courses are regularly offered in a self-paced, online format.
The core courses will begin just prior to the start of the iaedp™ annual conference on Wednesday and Thursday, February 6 – 7, 2019. Opening day for the conference itself is February 7, and conference events continue through February 10 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert, California. The Core Courses may be taken to satisfy the requirements for the Educational Designation, Certification or may be taken as a refresher. If a professional is pursuing certification, all other prerequisites regarding education, experience and supervision apply. Both the Educational Designation and Certification require a successful completion of a written final examination post-symposium.
Each three-hour class is presented by eating disorder professionals nationally known in the field for their treatment expertise along with a co-presenter from the iaedp™ certification committee. “A professional's time is valuable, which is why we developed the two-day live format for our annual Symposium,” said Bonnie Harken, Managing Director at the iaedp™ Foundation.
“It also can be difficult for many professionals to find time for certification training – and by offering the courses prior to the Symposium, they’re able to accomplish as much as possible,” added Harken.
The core courses are offered as a separate track for $325 or combined with a 2019 Symposium registration for an additional $200. Course titles are: Overview of Eating Disorders, Therapeutic Treatments for Eating Disorders, Nutritional Therapy for Eating Disorders, and Medical Treatment of Eating Disorders.
The iaedp™ Foundation’s Presidents Council, which provides organization support, includes: Center for Change; Center for Hope of the Sierras; Center For Discovery; Eating Recovery Center; KellerLife Center for Eating Disorders; Laureate Eating Disorders Program; McCallum Place Eating Disorder Centers; The Meadows Ranch; Rogers Behavioral Health; Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders; Selah House; The Renfrew Center; Timberline Knolls; Turning Tides Eating Disorder Treatment Center; and Veritas Collaborative.
