Professor Tracey Wade presents: Using Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM) to treat Anorexia Nervosa

About this event

This workshop is an exciting opportunity to develop some core competencies required for treating underweight eating disorders.

The workshop is suitable for new and experienced clinicians working in the public sector or in an outpatient setting within private practice. The following issues will be covered over the 2 days of the interactive workshop designed to build knowledge and skills:

• Models of underweight disorders that explain causation and maintenance

• The important role of physical sequalae in maintaining underweight eating disorders and why medical monitoring, refeeding and nutritional health are urgent priorities in treatment

• Principles and evidence that should guide treatment, including the inclusion of significant others

• Treatment guidelines and an overview of evidence-based treatments for underweight eating disorders

• The importance and challenges of developing and working within a multidisciplinary team to provide the best care for patients

• Specialist supportive clinical management (SSCM): psychoeducation, focus on behaviour change related to eating, addressing the other maintaining factors

• Use of inpatient care: why and when?

• Resources for therapists.

1. Understand the contributing and maintaining factors for anorexia nervosa

4. Have a deep understanding of the general principles that need to guide any interventions with anorexia nervosa
