My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Association of Professionals Treating Eating Disorders, San Francisco, CA, USA
I have worked in the field of eating disorders since 1984, with APTED in the Bay Area since 1985. I have watched this group grow from a small, ardent group of eating disorder specialists to a large and active group, committed to offering training and networking opportunities to professionals, support and referrals to professionals of other disciplines or other geographical areas, as well as support,
referrals, and/or direct service to those in recovery from eating disorders, as well as to their friends and/or family members. APTED is my "go to" group to find the right fit for the services or connections I need.
From a little hand book of resources, APTED now has a website of current listings of upcoming
trainings and CEU presentations and conferences, as well as ways for eating disorder sufferers and their families to find the specialist services they are seeking. More recently, they have added a much-needed low-fee clinic, which sees clients for sliding scale fees, and is staffed by clinicians in training. Training opportunities specifically for eating disorder treatment are limited and highly sought out.
APTED remains an ardent group of eating disrder specialists and has stayed the course in their commitment to both supporting professionals in their work, and eating disorder sufferers in their recovery. As a long standing professional in this field, I am impressed by, indebted to and grateful for this organization.
