One day workshop for clinicians and carers

February 18 2019 8.30am-4pm Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital Education Centre 

Come & learn from these inspiring clinicians from the USA about a new evidence based multi- family treatment  for  adults (16+)  with  Anorexia Nervosa (AN) that  applies  insights  into  the neurobiology of  AN to:          

–better manage eating disorder symptoms by working with AN traits        

–reduce mealtime avoidance and distress        

–increase effectiveness of client-support interactions to support recovery

In a one day format, clinicians and carers will learn about the following          

-Basics of neurobiology of eating disorders        

-Menu of traits & heritability        

-Developing neurobiology literacy (clinicians and carers):          

-Using neurobiological understanding to work with the person with AN & their family/supports          

-Negotiating and developing behavioural contracts          

- Helpful tools for family/supports and clients

Carers will come away with greater understanding about what is driving the eating disorders  and valuable skills for working with their loved one.  

Clinicians: please note that the one day event is Day 1 of the 4 day training. It will set the basics upon which the rest of the training will draw from EDFA has deliberately brought clinicians and carers together for this day to recognise that both are critical members of the team and can learn from each other as well as the TBT-S presenters.                                              *Supports is anyone who is in a support role e.g. family, partner, close friend
