About the Course

The Introduction to Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders (ERED) on-line course presents the foundational principles, maps and models of the ERED approach to treatment. The Introduction to Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders (ERED) on-line training is offered several times a year. Each training cohort is limited to 15-20 participants and includes the following:
• A live introductory webinar. During this time you will get a chance to meet your instructors and fellow cohort members. Your instructors will orient you to the asynchronous/on-demand course platform, give you instructions for submitting questions prior to the consultation groups and answer questions you have about navigating the class.
• Asynchronous/on-demand course. You will have at total of 3 months access to approximately 13 hours of online class content. Access begins directly following the introductory webinar. PLEASE NOTE: The first 6 weeks of access are supported by Q and A groups described below. We strongly encourage that you complete the course by the 6th week. The extra 6-week access is designed to support review of the material as you begin to integrate ERED into your work with clients. This class combines video lectures, slide-show presentations, guided experiential activities and journal prompts to facilitate and embodied learning experience.
• Three live 2- hour virtual Q and A discussion groups with your instructor(s). During these meetings, your instructors will clarify any questions that you have about the content of the on-demand course. They are scheduled 2, 4 and 6 weeks after the introductory webinar. Q and A sessions focus on questions about the class material. Alumni of this course are eligible to enroll in our Alumni Consultation Groups where we discuss questions about clients and case presentations.
NOTE: Completion of the course requires attendance at all live virtual meetings and completion of all the on-demand class lessons. We understand that life can be unpredictable. If events arise that make you unable to attend these virtual consultation groups, you must notify the Embodied Recovery Institute at [email protected]. You will be given information on how to schedule a make-up session with an instructor. There will be an additional charge for these make-up sessions that is payable directly to the instructor.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, Introduction to Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders (ERED): Online created by Rachel Lewis-Marlow and Paula Scatoloni, MS, LCSW, CEDS, SEP in 2021.
