EDRC now offers a year-long series of webinars in the advanced treatment of eating disorders >>
The Eating Disorder Resource Center, based in New York City, was the first outpatient program in the country to develop specialized treatment for women and men who were suffering from bulimia. Over the years, EDRC evolved to treat a wide range of eating disorders, offering individual, group, family and couples treatment of those challenged by bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia and other kinds of body dysmorphia. EDRC is renowned for integrating a psychological understanding of disordered eating with direct intervention regarding food or weight related behaviors. EDRC provides individualized care as well as refers patients to independent therapists trained in EDRC’s treatment modalities.
EDRC is based at Columbus Circle in Manhattan. Patients can be seen by independent therapists in locations throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Westchester and Long Island. Our referral network is extensive including physicians, psychiatrists, registered dieticians and gynecologists—so that all concerns can best be addressed.
With over 30 years of experience, we are keenly aware of the latest research and clinical understandings of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorders. We are dedicated to knowing what can best help when you or someone you know is in trouble with food.
In addition to our ongoing Groups and Individual Therapy, EDRC offers a support group on the first Monday of every month.
WHO? This group is appropriate for anyone (18+) who feels that they are struggling with eating or body image issues. All genders, shapes, and sizes welcome. Please note that due to limited space, only people with ED and Body Image issues are able to rsvp.
WHAT? This is an open support group. Group members are encouraged to share and to provide feedback to one another. This group is not a replacement for individual or group therapy.
HOW? Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance, and then just show up. You do not need to bring anything.
NOT SURE? First time? Had bad experiences in groups before? It’s understandable that you might be apprehensive about coming. However, it’s non-committal, so why not give it a try?
WHO RUNS IT? Our group is now run by Toby Schwartz, LCSW-R. She holds a Master's degree in clinical social work from NYU. Toby has worked extensively with eating disordered patients, and has a background in both cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approaches to treatment.
HOW TO REGISTER: Advanced RSVP is essential. Please email email@example.com to RSVP. The fee for the group session is $10. Please pay in advance using the online Paypal button below. There is the option to pay for a single session, or a group of four sessions. Payment can also be made by cash at the door. Click here to receive reminders about the monthly support groups.
