Compassion-Focused Therapy for Eating and Body-Image Concerns

  • Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane
  • 16 May, 2019 - 31 Oct, 2019

People with eating and body-image concerns generally experience high levels of self-criticism, self-directed hostility and shame. Furthermore, these individuals tend to have difficulties generating and activating affiliative and self-soothing emotions.

Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) was developed specifically to addresses these issues in presentations resistant to standard treatment approaches. Since then, CFT for eating disorders (CFT-E) has been designed to incorporate compassion-focused strategies into standard eating disorder treatment approaches.This workshop will describe:

  1. the theoretical rationale for a compassion focused approach as part of eating disorder treatment
  2. the adaptation and incorporation of CFT-E within standard eating disorder therapies
  3. a review of the current evidence-base for CFT-E, and
  4. the use of CFT-E in clinical practice across the spectrum and various modes of inpatient-and community-based services.
