Leslie Bloch, LCSW is a graduate of New York University’s Silver School of Social Work’s MSW program. She has focused her career on learning how to treat eating disorders based on clinical research data from the field.
She completed her clinical internship at The Renfrew Center of New York where she worked in the Day Treatment and the Intensive Outpatient Programs.
Leslie then worked at Columbus Park Collaborative, a private outpatient eating disorder treatment center. During this time she studied and learned Christopher Fairburn’s Enhanced Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E), which, based on the current body of research, is the most effective treatment for adults with eating disorders. Also during this time she was intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with Behavioral Tech and used the adapted form of DBT to treat eating disorders. She has facilitated DBT skills groups for eating disorder clients since 2011.
She is currently being trained in Family Based Treatment for Adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa (Maudsley Method) by the Training Institute for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders as well as participating in a study on “Web-centered training” of CBT-E being conducted by Professor Christopher Fairburn and Professor Zafra Cooper of the Centre for Research on Eating Disorders at Oxford.
She strives to keep up-to-date on the most effective treatment modalities in the eating disorders field and to deliver these modalities with fidelity.
Leslie lives in Manhattan with her husband and two daughters, Mia and Scout.
