Clients with Eating Disorders are challenging to treat. Most of us have not had much formal training or supervised experience in this area. Joining professional organizations and attending their conferences can help you increase your knowledge and skills.  Obtaining supervision and consultation also enhance our ability to grow and change in our work with clients.
