Evidence-based treatment for bulimia nervosa - 2-day training in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy-Enhanced for eating disorders (Feb 2024)

Date: Thursday 4th (930am - 5pm) & Friday 5th April (930am - 4pm), 2024
Location: Nurture Psychology, Parnell AKL
Facilitator: Dr Marion Roberts, Clinical Psychologist

CBT-E is one of 3 leading evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, with particularly strong evidence for those with bulimia nervosa.

This 2-day training is for registered psychological therapists who have a desire to work within a clear evidence-based treatment framework with adult & young adult clients presenting with binge eating & purging.

This training workshop will briefly cover the evidence base for CBT-E for bulimia nervosa, followed by diagnostic & suitability considerations/contraindications for CBT-E treatment. The key focus of the training will be on teaching & practical implementation of all 4 stages the 20-session treatment model, with particularly emphasis on stages 1 & 3. Teaching will include viewing therapy examples of behavioural & cognitive interventions, case based discussions, real client work examples, and the opportunity to practice skills in pairs. While training is focussed on delivery of CBT-E for adult clients with bulimia nervosa, augmentations of the model (working with adolescents, working with binge eating disorder & anorexia nervosa) will be briefly outlined in the final afternoon of training. Paper copies of client handouts and therapy exercises are provided.

Knowledge of & experience working with adult eating disorders is an advantage, but not a pre-requisite. Trainings are in a small group setting in order to facilitate learning, therefore spaces are limited. Registration fee ($600+GST) includes snacks both days.
