The Eating Disorder Therapist Networking Group was founded in Scotland in 2011. Having re-named the group and taken a break for a few years, we are relaunching the networking group with a new name and expanding membership to outside of Scotland too! So everyone is welcome!
The Eating Disorder Therapist Networking Group (EDTNG) is a networking, ideas, discussion and interest group for anyone, including psychotherapists, counsellors, therapists, psychologists and others working therapeutically with this client group, who have a professional interest in eating disorders and disordered eating. Other professionals working or volunteering in the field of eating disorders are welcome to join too. Please note: this is NOT a support group for those experiencing eating disorders.
The networking group is a voluntary arm of the private psychotherapy practice, Talking EDs: Eating Disorder Support Service Scotland, which specialises in eating disorders and disordered eating. If you're interested in getting involved as a Member, Committee Member, Speaker/Trainer or in any other capacity, please do get in touch! We welcome anyone across the UK and beyond to join us.
You might be thinking 'What kind of things will we do?' The answer is: as much as we can! While the main aim is 'networking', we believe that the group can involve a lot of different activities and lots of different people. We are open to new ideas and experiences. We would love your ideas and comments about what the group can do too.
Here's some ideas and suggestions. We've already done some of these previously (see our past life above) and we look forward to future meetings, events, gatherings and networking!:
Becoming a Member is easy!
Although Talking EDs is a private, for-profit business, the Eating Disorder Therapist Networking Group (EDTNG) will be our voluntary arm and essentially non-profit. We will be volunteering our time to manage and facilitate it. Any event charges, membership fees etc. go to the running of the group - we don't make any money from it.
Who Can Join?
Anyone with a professional interest in eating disorders - paid or voluntary - is welcome to become a Member and attend meetings, gatherings, activities, discussion groups, events and so on. The group may appeal to the following, although anyone is welcome to join!
While the networking group is targeted at those working therapeutically with individuals experiencing eating disorders/disordered eating and their families/carers/supporters, anyone with a professional interest in welcome to join. We believe in being as inclusive as possible, as we can all learn from each other. While we are based in bonny Scotland, we would like to invite anyone from the UK and beyond to join as a Member.
