Hello everyone, welcome to our
Chapter website! I am the current President of the Orange County iaedp Chapter
and feel humbled by the talent, love, and dedication of our Committee and
community. OC iaedp is the local chapter of the International Association of
Eating Disorder Professionals. In line with our mission and vision, we aim to
raise eating disorder awareness and to bring training and educational
opportunities to professionals treating eating disorders.
The International Association of
Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp) was established in 1985 by a group of
progressive thinkers wanting to ensure the highest standards of education,
training and professionalism in the field of eating disorders. The Orange
County Chapter of iaedp is working hard to continue this mission with the
establishment of our chapter website, Facebook Page, Twitter and Linked In
Group, as well as our quarterly educational events.
Please let us know if you are
interested in getting involved in any capacity or if you would like to support
our ongoing efforts. We rely on our members, sponsors, and the community to
keep doing what we do. We are excited to continue providing opportunities for
growth, education, and awareness of eating disorders including bringing in
highly valued speakers to present on cutting edge treatment and interventions.
Visit us periodically for updates and feel free to reach out to any committee
member if you’re interested in learning more or serving or presenting. We look
forward to seeing new and familiar faces at our quarterly events!
Ken Graves, MA, LMFT, CEDS
