Sean Baker at Bringing your voice to the Table
The true face of eating disorders is diverse and varied, yet there remain tremendous disparities in who has access to treatment, in part due to the profound and pervasive impacts of discrimination and marginalization. It is vital that clinicians are able to provide culturally competent treatment, but it is also crucial also that this diversity is reflected among treatment providers.
On December 2, The Marginalized Voices Campaign held Bringing Your Voice to the Table: A Panel Discussion for Professionals on Improving Cultural Competency in Eating Disorder Treatment. Sean Baker, LMFT was part of a panel with other advocates, educators, and professionals, to help shed light on this important issue.
Sean Baker Ends his Service on IAEDP Board of Directors
Sean Baker, LMFT will end over five years of service on the Board of Directors of the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals. He has served as Marketing Chair (2010 -2011), Vice President/President-Elect (2012 – 2013), President (2013 – 2015), and finally Past President and Treasurer this past year. His friends and colleagues at IAEDP remarked on his service and dedication as he rolls off the Board of Directors to begin an Advisory Board for the Chapter:
“Although I’ve just started getting to know Sean and Candy in the last year while on the board, I’ve been so impressed with their dedication and love for the chapter in bringing eating disorder education and community building to our area for so many years. They both have huge hearts and were so welcoming of me as I was learning about our chapter and board duties. I wish they didn’t have to go just yet so I could get to work alongside them a bit longer. But I’m glad they will still be involved as chapter members. Thank you Sean and Candy for all your love and care for our IAEDP chapter and community.”
- Sona DeLurgio, PsyD, LMFT
"While I have not had the pleasure of knowing either of you for very long, I am very grateful for all the time, energy, and dedication you have placed into this chapter. You have both been so dedicated to spreading education and awareness of eating disorders for many years now and I know you will continue to do that work outside of this setting. Your guidance and experience will definitely be missed, but I am glad that you will still both be a presence at our events!"
- John Siritaranukul, MS, RD
