Associate, iaedp Institute on Eating Disorders
This designation has been created to acknowledge and formally recognize those working in the field of eating disorders or affiliated professions who have completed basic coursework (as defined below) with an educational designation which would not be a path to certification. Those seeking this designation would not meet the qualifications to become certified and treat patients independently. This designation would signify the individual has completed coursework and testing that demonstrates a basic overview of eating disorders, current treatment modalities, medical aspects, and nutritional aspects of diagnosis and treatment.
This process is under the supervision of the iaedp Advisory Board and the iaedp Board of Directors. It is not part of iaedp’s certification process. It is distinctly educational and does not indicate a proficiency or ability to treat eating disorders independently.
