      Given the nature of the work we do in specifically treating eating disorders, applicants currently in treatment for an eating disorder, recently in recovery from an eating disorder, or in long term recovery from an eating disorder should strongly consider if they can sufficiently separate their own eating disorder struggles from those of our clients in order to effectively intervene with clients, and whether this environment is conducive to their overall wellbeing. Applicants with these histories are strongly encouraged to consult with loved ones and their health care professionals prior to applying.
