DBT for Eating Disorders

DBT for Eating Disorders

RO-DBT Australia

About this event

This online training, conducted over two half-days, aims to introduce participants to DBT as a treatment of emotion dysregulation, and more specifically how DBT strategies and interventions can be used to treat problematic eating behaviours in both individual treatment and using the comprehensive DBT group therapy model.

The workshop is designed to be demonstrative, engaging and interactive. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice new skills and interventions in an online and supportive environment.

Workshop objectives are:

- Introduce the DBT treatment model, focusing on dialectical theory and behavioural interventions

- Provide an understanding of the underlying research outcomes

- Outline key factors and challenges that face clients presenting with both restrictive and binge eating patterns

- Introduce the emotion dysregulation model of problem eating

- Outline orientation and commitment strategies to ensure that clients engage and remain in treatment

- Discuss additional mindfulness strategies designed to manage urges and difficulties remaining abstinent from problem behaviour

- Understand how behavioural interventions can be utilised in individual therapy

- Troubleshoot difficulties that may arise in treatment - Introduce DBT relapse prevention strategies
