Creator of the EDIT™ Treatment Approach
Owner & Clinical Director, Positive Pathways Ltd
Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ is the “complete recovery” treatment approach developed by “Dr. Dorie” McCubbrey, MSEd, PhD, LPC, CEDS – it was initially created in 1995, following her own journey of recovery from Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorder. Dr. Dorie has been a specialist in the treatment of eating disorders for more than 20 years, during which time she has further refined her EDIT™ theory and techniques. She began teaching others her methods in 2003, and in 2013 the EDIT™ Certified training program was launched, providing a standardized credentialing process for health professionals who are interested in obtaining a thorough knowledge and clinical skills to work with eating disorders.
Dr. Dorie holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of Akron, and a Doctorate in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Michigan. This unique combination of credentials allows her to address the complex psychological issues which underlie eating disorders, as well as physical issues including nutrition, intuitive eating, fitness and body image. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Colorado (LPC.0002532). As a LPC, Dr. Dorie is familiar with mental health issues which often co-occur with eating disorders, such as alcoholism and other addictions, depression, and anxiety. She is also a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) – a credential awarded by the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp).
Dr. Dorie is the best-selling author of Dr. Dorie’s Don’t Diet Book (Positive Pathways Press, 1998), How Much Does Your Soul Weigh (HarperCollins, 2003), plus numerous workbooks, CDs and videos about eating disorders and weight issues. Her expert commentary has been featured in magazines including Glamour, Shape and Natural Health. She has also been interviewed on national television shows including the FOX News Channel. She is currently finishing work on her third book, which highlights the five principles of EDIT™ and illustrates the application of the EDIT™ treatment approach. EDIT™ RESOURCES
