MANTRA Workshop: Maudsley Model of AN Treatment for Adults (2021)
POSTPONED UNTIL 2022
Presented by Professor Tracey Wade, this three-day workshop is divided into two parts: Introductory (first 2 days) and Advanced (third day).
Over the first 2 days we will examine the nature of anorexia nervosa (AN) and fundamental treatment principles regardless of the specific therapeutic approach taken. As part of this discussion we will look at weighing clients in session and explore the difficulties of adhering to manualised treatments. We then move on the examination of the model underpinning Maudsley Model of AN Treatment for Adults (MANTRA), and the evidence supporting this approach.
The centrality of motivational interviewing to MANTRA will be explored, and the tasks of the initial phase of treatment will be described. On the third day, the modules of Emotional and Social Mind and Thinking Style will be described, along with trouble shooting and examination of our readiness to use MANTRA. Throughout the workshop there will individual and small group exercises to embed learning.
