Kellie Lavender - Faculty member of the Training Institute for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders.

The purpose of the Institute is to disseminate evidence-based treatments for child and adolescent eating disorders. I am proud to have been asked to become a member of the Faculty. It is my firm belief that any person with an eating disorder should know what treatment they are getting and have it administered by an expert. You deserve the best treatment possibe so be cautious and ask questions. Do not settle for FBT "informed" or AFT "informed" or CBT-E "informed". Or if you choose this, know exactly what the "informed" piece means. Too often people believe that they getting a treatment when they are not, which could mean that the chances of recovery are jeopardised.
