Assessment and treatment of adolescents and adults with Eating Disorders in private practice: A comprehensive 3-day workshop

Eating Disorders Training Australia

About this event

This three-day online interactive workshop is designed to give you what you need to know to confidently identify, assess, diagnose and implement effective treatment with clients with eating disorders in private practice.

It has been developed and is facilitated by Dr Sarah Egan and Dr Amanda Bolton, active treating senior clinicians for clinicians with real world experience of the complexities of working with this client group in the private practice framework.

It integrates an introduction to the EDs as well as comprising two days of treatment-specific training. No pre-requisite training required! You will not only learn the principals of CBT-E but how to effectively integrate family work and other practical strategies to ensure you have the tools required to help clients successfully commence and progress through treatment.

You will achieve:
· Introduction to eating disorders and complexities related to this client group
· ED-specific assessment and diagnostic skills
· How to tailor the treatment to the individual’s unique formulation
· How to integrate the specific strategies that work for clients with EDs that are not in the CBT-E manuals or pure manual-based training
· How to effectively draw on family systems to influence change
· How to skill up carers to achieve best outcomes for clients
· How to adapt treatment for older adolescents and young adults with EDs
· How to establish and work within ED specific care teams in private practice
· How to work within a Health At Every Size (HAES) framework to benefit your clients
· What to look for and how to manage risks with this specific population
· How to address some of the mechanisms underlying the client’s ED
· How to work within the Medicare system with this population
· How to effectively treat the eating and non-eating sides of the ED

The training is live and interactive, involving:
· Real client testimonials and case examples
· Videos demonstrating the skills and approaches
· Take home resources and handouts
· Opportunities to practice skills learned It is specifically designed to meet all requirements of the NEDC competency framework, which will be used to inform the upcoming national accreditation.
