About the Workshop:
CBT-E offers a promising new evidence based treatment framework for adolescents recovering from eating disorders. Similar to the adult version of CBT-E, the adolescent version is a personalized intervention that targets key maintaining features of eating disorders and provides an additional framework for working with an adolescent client, including involving family members as support. It is an individual treatment designed to enhance an adolescent’s agency and autonomy, build engagement and can be applied transdiagnostically. This one day workshop will support you to apply this model of treatment.

About the Workshop:
Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM) was originally designed as a placebo comparative treatment in a clinical trial for the treatment of anorexia nervosa, and showed promising results. Since then SSCM has continued to be used, and shown to be a valid and effective treatment for anorexia nervosa. SSCM combines a range of tools including clinical management, psychoeducation and encouragement with a supportive therapeutic style, working
collaboratively with clients to target specific eating disorder symptoms. The aim of the therapy is to empower clients to make a link between their symptoms, eating behaviour and weight, and to support them to gradually return to normal eating and weight.
