CEED WORKSHOP: MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING FOR EATING DISORDERS

In eating disorder patients, readiness to change has emerged as a significant predictor of treatment adherence and treatment success. Individuals with eating disorders are often ambivalent about recovery, and treatment refusal, dropout, and relapse are common amongst this group. Motivational interviewing is a client-centred approach, aimed at enhancing intrinsic motivation to change, by exploring the client’s ambivalence. Motivational approaches allow the client to play a more active role in their recovery by acknowledging their position as an expert of their own experience and allowing them to have a sense of control over their recovery process. As such, addressing motivation and readiness to change is an essential component of treating an eating disorder.

About the presenter:

Andrew O’Sullivan works across two roles within North Western Mental Health, firstly as a training consultant, and the second as a Chief Social Worker. In 2015, Andrew gained membership to the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). Having started his career in general Health Social Work, Andrew quickly moved into Mental Health where he has worked in a variety of roles including, inpatient, community, dual diagnosis, project management and training. Throughout all of these roles, Andrew has himself revisited and refined his Motivational Interviewing (MI) practice, and as he says in the training "MI has not just changed me as a clinician, it has changed me as a person".
