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.

Julian Baudinet, Principal Clinical Psychologist at the Maudsley Centre for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders (MCCAED)

- 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
