Cognitive Behaviour Therapy – Enhanced (CBT-E) is recognised as the first-line treatment for adults with an eating disorder.
Despite the obvious value in CBT-E for eating disorders, concerns above its limitations in addressing complex and/or comorbid presentations, its viability for private-practice settings, and its application to higher-weighted individuals have been ubiquitous. As such, this in person workshop aims to provide:
- An overview of the theoretical background of and evidence for CBT-E as well as its treatment principles, and protocols,
- An overview of the transdiagnostic formulation (with consideration of its use and limitation in complex/comorbid presentations) and its role in treatment planning,
- Considerations of therapist stance and effective client engagement (with specific consideration for ambivalence and/or low motivation in treatment),
- Consideration of its application to diverse populations (including higher-weighted individuals) and across different settings (specifically, private practice settings), and
- Demonstrations and skills practice of the main CBT-E interventions.
This face-to-face training will involve didactic, interactive/experiential practise opportunities, and case summaries/examples. Prior knowledge and understanding of eating disorders as well as training and experience in general CBT principles is assumed.
