Eating disorders affect a great percentage of adolescents. The dramatic increase in their incidence rates in the last few decades and the high mortality rate associated with these disorders have made it even more necessary to find effective treatments. Research has supported the use of Family-Based Treatment (FBT) as evidence based therapy for the treatment of eating disorders in adolescents. This course will train social workers, psychologists, child psychiatrists, and other eating disorders specialists in FBT.
- Participants will understand the rationale and the scientific support for FBT for adolescent eating disorders.
- Participants will learn the fundamental assumptions of FBT for adolescent eating disorders, as well as become knowledgeable about the impact of FBT on treatment targets and strategies.
- Participants will learn the main treatment interventions for each phase of FBT as well as learn how to implement the therapy.
Psychotherapy Training Components
Psychotherapy Training will include two components: Intensive Workshop and Follow-Up Supervision (with competency evaluation and certification). Individuals may apply to participate in only the Intensive Workshop or in both the Intensive Workshop and the Follow-up Supervision. Follow-up supervision includes 25 hours of supervision via phone with at least 3 families over the different phases of treatment (with at least one patient going through all 3 phases of treatment).
