Eating Disorder Psychologist Position Description

Centre for Eating, Weight and Body Image (CEWBI)

We have opportunities available for psychologists who are passionate about providing client-centred, empirically-supported psychological assessment, treatment, and support for individuals experiencing eating, weight, or body image related difficulties. Our goal is to make empirically-supported treatment available in the community, and we have a reputation as a leading treatment provider in this area. Our services are in high demand, and we look forward to welcoming more psychologists to our committed and supportive team.

We focus on the psychological assessment and treatment of eating, weight, and body image concerns and associated physical health (e.g., diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome) and mental health (e.g., depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders) difficulties in adults, adolescents and children.  We have strong links with GPs, psychiatrists, and allied health providers including dietitians and other psychologists. Many clients also find us through word of mouth, both through existing clients and our website and social media.

 

We are seeking psychologists for our East Melbourne Clinic to provide a combination of face-to-face and telehealth appointments. Psychologists available for telehealth only will also be considered.

 

The Team 

CEWBI psychologists are experienced, passionate, and committed to providing best-practice, evidence-based care to individuals with eating, weight and body image concerns.

 

Our practice Director, Dr Leah Brennan, is a Clinical, Health, Educational and Developmental Psychologist. Leah is passionate about maintaining a supportive and evolving practice where psychologists feel valued, are supported to deliver empirically-supported treatment, and have opportunities to develop their clinical skills and interests.

 

Our Client Support Team looks after both our clients and our psychologists. They take care of most reception and administration duties, leaving our psychologists to focus their time and energy on their clients. Our Client Support Team anticipates our needs and provides seamless systems that reduce admin demands on psychologists.

 

Our training, supervision and support program

 

We are passionate about providing an engaging, motivating and supportive workplace for our team. We know that our clients will receive high-quality care if our psychologists are well supported.

 

We provide a comprehensive training and support program tailored to the needs of the individual psychologist (including registrars). This includes:

  • Formal training in a range of empirically-supported eating disorder treatments including (but not limited to) Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E), Family Based Therapy (FBT), and Specialised Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM). This training is delivered by national and international experts.

  • Regular individual and group supervision provided by experienced, approved supervising psychologists.

  • Regular modality specific (i.e., CBT-E, FBT, etc) group supervision facilitated by local and international experts.

  • Access to skills workshops facilitated by experienced psychologists covering a range of topics important for clinical practice (e.g., managing admin tasks, setting and reviewing homework tasks, liaising with referrers, Medicare etc)

  • Registrar programs for Clinical Psychology, Health Psychology, Educational and Developmental Psychology.
