Family-Based Therapy for Anorexia Nervosa (FBT-AN) is recognised as the first line, evidence-based model of care for adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN) and atypical AN. FBT was first developed at the Maudsley Hospital in the UK in the 1980s, with further research conducted worldwide and the publication of a treatment manual in the US in the early 2000s.
In completing training participants will have:
- A background understanding of the historical influences on the development of FBT
- Sound understanding of the core principles of FBT
- Ability to set up treatment well
- Capacity to conduct FBT with a young person & their family
- Introductory skills into how to address clinical dilemmas that arise during FBT
The training will involve didactic, interactive and experiential practise opportunities. Prior knowledge of understanding and assessing eating disorders is assumed.
