Woodland Forge Outpatient Eating Disorder Collaboration for Professionals

Collaborative Engagement With Team

In many cases Woodland Forge can play an adjunctive, supportive role in which the originating treatment team would maintain charge of the case but Woodland Forge would provide an individualized, time-limited program for your patient. If your patient is new to treatment, we could offer all facets of care as well. We would initiate communication with you from the initial assessment process through discharge. A written report would be forwarded to you upon your patient's discharge which would contain results from our assessment, treatment progress, and treatment goals that we recommend.

Consultation & Training

For those professionals who are interested, consultation and training can be arranged. Consultation is also available for assistance with a particular patient or family on your caseload.

What can we offer family physicians or pediatricians who refer their patients to us?

First and foremost, we offer you the confidence that your patient will be effectively treated with evidence based approaches. While traditional family-based treatment (FBT) approach takes a year or longer, we have created innovative programs that have been able to condense the coaching time for the parents over a short-term intensive. Post intensive, the parents are able to effectively begin the refeeding process and only need the support of their current team and several booster sessions from us to successfully help their child.

Second, we are committed to offering you ongoing and helpful communication regarding your patient's status. This involves our initial telephone call as well as a written report upon the patient's discharge reviewing the progress and recommendations.

If you want a team member from Woodland Forge to come to your practice and offer education about this important and effective approach please don't hesitate to email us or call 610-933-6475.
