Evidence Based Treatment and Eating Disorders: A General Practitioner's Guide - Feedback

  •  Lucene is really knowledgeable, but she also comes across as quite personable. I think both those things make the course content easy to follow and interesting to learn. I liked the practical homework, as I think I gained a lot of experiential knowledge through doing the same homework that my clients would be expected to do. The course being online made it really easy to access, and the platform that it was delivered on was easy to use.  
  • It  was very informative, and I liked the organization of the course. It helped me to conceptualize how to get started with an ED patient as well as how to begin the journey of Tx after the assessment phase.
  • Presenter  was knowledgeable with lots of clinical experience.   I particularly liked when she modeled interactions with client.
  • Lucene  was very friendly and easy to follow in the webinars. She is knowledgeable and willing to answer questions!
  • The content was excellent. Lucene was excellent.
