Virtual workshop: Management & Psychological Treatment of Eating Disorders

ANZAED

About this event

This three-day workshop is aimed at mental health professionals who have completed their clinical degree and who are interested in providing treatment for adults with eating disorders. Assumed knowledge includes understanding how to assess and treat mental health conditions that commonly coexist with eating disorders.

This workshop covers ANZAED's Practice standards and is designed to give those clinicians the core skills to assess and plan treatment, establish a safe therapeutic framework to manage risks and comorbidities, and then conduct effective treatments. The focus is on adults with severe and complex eating disorders, especially anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. The workshop commences with crucial information about the emotional, cognitive and behavioural features of the eating disorders and moves to cover the medical and psychiatric dangers associated with this condition. The training curriculum includes key elements from the ANZAED practice standards for the treatment of severe and complex eating disorders.

Participants will learn how to conduct a thorough assessment and establish a safe therapeutic modality to deal with the medical and other dangers that are associated with eating disorders. While CBT-E constitutes many of the core treatment skills at the centre of the workshop, additional clinical skills which are also core principles of a good eating disorders treatment will be taught over the three days. These will be drawn from a range of evidenced based treatments such as Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM), Maudsley Model of Treatment for Adults with Anorexia Nervosa (MANTRA) and Focal Psychodynamic Therapy.

This will include managing the therapeutic relationship, knowing how to identify the level of readiness for change of each client, having capacity to respond to any stage of readiness for change and increase motivation. The workshop includes lecture-style content, group discussions, role-play exercises and video and in vivo demonstrations. Extensive handouts will be provided on assessment, formulations, management approaches, treatment techniques and the Medicare Guidelines introduced in November 2019.

Dates: Thursday 29 April, Friday 30 April & Saturday 1 May 2021
Time: 9.00am – 5.00pm (on all days) 
Three-day Registration Fee: $380 Members; $480 Non-Members (Only 35 spots available)
