Specialist Supportive Clinical Management of Anorexia Nervosa

Specialist Supportive Clinical Management of Anorexia Nervosa

Australia & New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders (ANZAED)

About this event

Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM) is one the three recommended outpatient therapies for adult anorexia nervosa recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in 2017. The therapy, developed in New Zealand, and evaluated in Australia, allows an informed but flexible approach to the treatment of anorexia nervosa.

Professor Tracey Wade will explain the two components of the therapy: specialist management and a supportive client-centred focus. She will provide evidence of its effectiveness. Resources for use with clients and for upskilling clinicians will be provided so both client and clinician can understand how the physical sequalae of eating disorders need to be managed in therapy in order to see progress in psychological health. Different themes in client centred focus will also be explored, along with resources to do this in way that best supports recovery in an eating disorder. Finally, therapists will self-assess their readiness and ability to do this type of work in their clinical setting.
