Advanced Training in Eating Disorder Focused Family Therapy Skills
Presented by Dr Andrew Wallis
Royal Park Campus, Parkville, VIC
Thursday 2 & Friday 3 May 2024
9.00am – 4.30pm
CEED is excited to be hosting Dr Andrew Wallis to offer an advanced training in working with adolescents with anorexia nervosa and their families. This workshop is for mental health clinicians, experienced with family-based therapy for eating disorders, who want to reflect on and develop a stronger focus on therapy processes with families, while also maintaining fidelity to the treatment structure and goals.
- Establish a secure base for therapy that meets the family at the right place and in the right way
- Implement a relational framework alongside the core principles of eating disorder focused family work
- Manage common in session dynamics such as parental discord, misattuned interactions, strong emotions, and poor participation.
- Implement interviewing skills that support parents and children to talk in session using questions, reflections and attuned responding.
The workshop will have a strong reflective component and will serve as an opportunity to consider what you value and what you want to think more about in your work with families.
Prior completion of family-based therapy training, and significant clinical practice experience of providing this treatment (e.g. worked with a minimum of 5 – 10 families utilising this model).
