About this event

Presented by CEED Senior Clinicians Tanya Gilmartin and Tess Shannon and delivered over two half-days live online.
Wednesday 5 October & Thursday 6 October, 8.30am-12.30pm

The workshop aims to equip participants with the following:

  • A working understanding of the SSCM model, key components and applications that supports immediate implementation of the intervention
  • Skills and practice in delivering key SSCM interventions and processes, including treatment set up, assessment, intervention and concluding phases, and following a session structure and using clinical tools
  • A framework for understanding and working with multidisciplinary roles in SSCM

Participants will have the opportunity to develop these skills through:

  • Active practice of SSCM interventions and techniques through demonstrations, case material and role plays
  • Provision of handouts and resources for formulation, goal setting, session structure, providing psycho-education and integrating goals with eating disorder behaviour change
  • Practice in implementing the skill of using of handouts and delivering psycho-education within an SSCM framework
  • Pre-readings which equip the clinician to feel informed about the research basis for SSCM and which form an introduction to the content covered will be provided prior to the workshop
