Table Talk, noun:
[tey-buh | tawk] a conversation around a table.
Our monthly table talks are a time treatment providers have with each other to catch up on our various professional endeavors. We introduce ourselves to each other, we examine our challenges together, and each month we enrich our understanding of one important aspect of patient care. Receiving this peer support is essential. Not only is a team approach necessary in our field, but it is this support that prevents burnout and continually renews our compassion for those who seek our services.
In 2013 a group of Eating Disorder treatment providers in the San Fernando Valley were interested in coordinating local services and VFEDP was born. It quickly expanded to the other Valleys of San Gabriel, Santa Clarita, and Conejo. The idea was to meet our colleagues and to build working relationships in our own back yards. To learn locally and develop business in our communities with less need for traffic apps and more time for collaboration over tea.
The treatment of Eating Disorders is hard work. We are grateful to provide these services, as it is an honor to enter into a healing relationship with someone who is suffering. RSVPs are appreciated, but not essential. There is a $10 fee to come to the meeting, and that includes 1 CEU. Come join us.
