RO-DBT for adolescents with AN

RO-DBT for adolescents with AN

The Victorian Centre of Excellence in Eating Disorders (CEED)

About this event

Radically-Open-DBT (RO-DBT) is a transdiagnostic treatment, which is based on neurobiological research and behavioural principles. RO-DBT was initially developed for individuals with treatment resistant depression and over-controlled personality disorder (OCPD), Avoidant PD and Schizoid PD. Preliminary outcome trials have also indicated some effectiveness for individuals with anorexia nervosa.

This webinar will introduce key features of RO-DBT, and how the underlying Neurobiological theory can assist clinicians in understanding anorexia. The presenters will discuss how RO-DBT has been integrated into eating disorder programs and explore some of the positive outcomes that have been observed. Objectives include:

- Introducing RO-DBT as a transdiagnostic approach

- Providing an overview of why addressing bio-temperament may improve outcomes for individuals with anorexia

- Suggesting some examples of strategies that may be helpful for addressing bio-temperament

- Providing an overview of considerations for using RO-DBT principles in working with adolescents, and how this may complement other treatments.
