CEED Training: Family-Based Treatment for Adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa


Family-Based Treatment (FBT) is recognised as the first line, evidence-based, early intervention model of care for adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN). FBT for AN was originally developed at the Maudsley Hospital UK in the 1990s. Prof Daniel le Grange & Prof James Lock are the international leaders in the development & application of this approach as an evidence-based practice and have published treatment manuals and parent guides. CEED has worked with Prof Le Grange over several years to develop training in this model to suit Victorian Service conditions.


In the last two years CEED has provided FBT training to over 300 clinicians and provided service development and consultation support to implement the FBT model of care in many Victorian CAMH / CYMH Services.


The workshop draws on ‘Treatment Manual for Anorexia Nervosa – A Family Based Approach’ 2nd Ed. (Lock & Le Grange. The Guilford Press, 2013.), and participants will gain:


  • a background understanding of the historical influences on the development of FBT
  • a thorough understanding of FBT practice assumptions and treatment phases
  • capacity to set up and conduct FBT with a young person and their family
  • capacity to address clinical dilemmas that arise during FBT
  • understanding of how to implement FBT as an integrated care model across local CAMHS and Paediatric Services

The training will involve didactic, interactive and experiential practise opportunities. Prior knowledge of understanding and assessing eating disorders is assumed.


Target Audience: Health Professionals working with adolescents with anorexia nervosa. Registrations from Victorian public mental health services clinicians will be prioritised.
