As the rate of individuals affected by eating disorders continues to grow, a greater need for qualified treatment providers in the field exists. iaedp has recognized that need by offering a rigorous Certification Program, established in 2002 and continually strengthened and updated to maintain its strong reputation in the mental health field. It is iaedp’s mission to promote excellence in competency assessment for professionals in the eating disorders field through offering a rigorous set of criteria for the evaluation of education, training, knowledge and experience. iaedp’s goal is to provide professional certification that is obtainable and affordable without compromising the high level of standards necessary.
Have you considered becoming certified, but wonder how it can benefit you and your practice? Confused about which certification route best fits your needs and experience? Thought about it in the past but it seemed too daunting, or confusing, and you set it on the back burner? Now is the time to give a new, or second, look at certification. A specialized certification is available for licensed therapists, physicians, registered dietitians and registered nurses who specialize in eating disorder treatment. This presentation will answer your questions about which certification route fits your needs - Traditional or Equivalency - and review the qualifications required for each and the steps to take towards completion of your application.
