Tara Deliberto on New Resources for Adults Recovering from Eating Disorders


In this podcast I interview Tara Deliberto. Tara is the director of the new Eating Disorders Partial Hospitalization Program at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

You’ll be able to hear Tara describe the dynamics of the new program in detail and explain how it came about. We also discuss why this sort of partial-hospitalization program is an essential addition to the treatment of eating disorders in adults.

As an adult with Anorexia, I personally am thrilled about this program because the state of treatment for adult sufferers of eating disorders is currently far from being up to scratch. Most of the time, the sufferer doesn’t actually recover at all in a 2 week inpatient stay. Yes, they may gain some weight, but that’s a superficial sign of recovery from an eating disorder. Full recovery means a lot more than gaining a couple of pounds.

This short of program addresses the ongoing support that is needed for people who are recovering from entrenched eating disorders.
