    Posting on behalf of Dr. Lauren Salvatore Farkas, Psy.D., Clinical Director at the LIJ/Northwell Eating Disorders Center:

    We are currently recruiting for the Child and Adolescent APA Accredited Fellowship, Eating Disorders Track at the LIJ/Northwell Eating Disorders Center at Cohen Children's Medical Center.  I have attached our brochure and included some information about the program below.

    The Eating Disorders Center: This program located at Cohen Children's Medical Center (located in Long Island, NY with close proximity to New York City) provides services to children, adolescents, and young adults between the ages of 8-21 who are diagnosed with Eating Disorders, as well as co-morbid diagnoses. Fellows provide care across settings allowing for an in-depth experience in all levels of care. On the Inpatient Medical/Surgical Unit fellows provide consultation and brief psychotherapeutic interventions for patients and families who require intensive medical care related to eating disorder symptoms and complications. The Partial Hospital Program is a five day a week service for patients who require continued medical monitoring and intensive support. Fellows will carry individual cases, run groups, and participate in a wide variety of opportunities in areas of program development, clinical interventions, and research. The Outpatient Clinic is an exciting new addition to our Eating Disorders Center, and will serve to support patients and families who are ready to continue treatment in an outpatient capacity. The outpatient clinic will offer once - twice weekly individual/family therapy, as well as groups.

    The Eating Disorders Center is a comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program and trainees participate in a DBT team, on-unit coaching and therapeutic aspects of the milieu. Fellows receive training in evidence-based treatment for eating disorders with an emphasis on Family Based Treatment (FBT) and DBT.

    Within the Eating Disorders Service, fellows have the opportunity to craft their experience and emphasize different areas of professional growth across the year. These areas include:

    • Program Development

    • Staff Training

    • Research 

    • Supervision

    • Clinical Development
