Two Day CPD Event on Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM) for Eating Disorders

Thursday 8th - Friday 9th March 2018 at BPS Offices, Tabernacle Street, London

This 2 day interactive training workshop will provide an overview of Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM). The training will be delivered by Jennifer Jordan who is Senior research fellow, senior lecturer, and clinical psychologist in the Department of Psychological Medicine (Christchurch) at the University of Otago.

SSCM was designed as a comparative treatment in a clinical trial to be delivered by therapists with expertise in eating disorders and to provide an optimised form of outpatient treatment. Surprisingly SSCM was superior to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) at the end of treatment, even though in the longer term these effects diminished again.

SSCM combines clinical management like giving information, advice and encouragement with a supportive therapeutic style. The aim of the therapy is to help the patients make a link between their symptoms and their eating behaviour and weight, and to support them in a gradual return to normal eating and weight. Additional therapy content is determined by the patient and can cover general areas of life. Unlike CBT or MANTRA this treatment model is not based on a psychological formulation, rather it uses a very practical and supportive approach.

SSCM is recommended as a first line treatment for adults with Anorexia in the NICE Guidelines (2017).
