Sharing Our Research Findings Through Training and Publication

Similar to how we prioritize conducting and overseeing research to advance the treatment of eating disorders, we also value the knowledge our staff already holds in this specialized field. As leaders in eating disorder treatments, McCallum Place staff frequently lead discussions, trainings, seminars, and presentations to train other professionals in eating disorder pathology and eating disorder treatment approaches.

Learn more about the ways in which McCallum Place shares our expertise with others through our publications and presentations.

Journal Articles

McCallum Place has recently had a manuscript accepted in the Journal of Eating and Weight Disorders! This manuscript outlines our findings on treatment outcomes and the predictors of additional outcomes. We are currently preparing two additional manuscripts that review our Victory Program findings.

Training Presentations

As painful as it is to be here and do what they’re asking, I don’t think I’d be able to do it without the McCallum Place support. You don’t have to know how to fix it, just be willing to listen and try their suggestions.
