WA event: Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E) Workshop for Psychologists & other Mental Health Practitioners

WA event: Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E) Workshop for Psychologists & other Mental Health Practitioners

Western Australia Eating Disorders Outreach and Consultation Service (WAEDOCS)

About this event

Presenter: Anthea Fursland PhD, FAED.

With recent changes in the Medicare Benefits Scheme (MBS) regarding increased provision of treatment for people with eating disorders, this workshop is aimed at mental health professionals planning to provide eating disorders treatment for Youth (≥16 years) & Adults.
Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E) was developed in the UK by Christopher Fairburn. From his transdiagnostic theory, which states that all eating disorders share similar core psychopathology, Fairburn enhanced his original treatment & made it transdiagnostic, applicable to all eating disorders & adolescents as well as adults. Research suggests it is effective for all eating disorders.

This collaborative workshop will include information on:

- An overview of the issues relevant to treating people with eating disorders
- Theoretical background and research base of CBT-E
- A comprehensive introduction to Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E)
- An understanding of how the transdiagnostic approach of CBT-E can be used with the full range of eating disorders seen in clinical practice
- Demonstrations of behavioural & cognitive interventions used in CBT-E
- Opportunities to practice skills

The training will involve didactic, interactive and experiential practise opportunities. Prior knowledge of understanding eating disorders and basic CBT principles is assumed.

Registrations Close: Monday April 26 at 4pm

Registration forms can be requested at WAEDOCS@health.wa.gov.au
