Family Based Therapy for Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa Intensive

Family Based Therapy for Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa Intensive

About this event

The model integrates ideas from a number of family therapy approaches but has the basic premise that families are the best resource to help their child recover from anorexia nervosa in the home setting. The model is an outpatient treatment that supports the family over a 12 month period, and is suitable for adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa with a short course of illness. Family Based Therapy has the strongest evidence base to date for this age group and was first implemented in Australia at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in 2003.

The aim of this workshop will be to provide intensive practical training in the application of this model including:

- Theoretical background and framework, including the roles of the multidisciplinary team in the model

- Detailed descriptions of each phase and the key sessions at the start of treatment

- A feature of the workshop will be the demonstration of key skills and the first two sessions of treatment

- Guided role play will be used to aid micro skill development of participants

By the completion of the workshop participants will have a good working knowledge of the model and will be able to begin to use the Family Based Therapy model in their own clinical setting.


 Prerequisites for the workshop include:

Experience with eating disorders

Some experience in seeing families

An opportunity to apply the model in clinical practice​.
