Schema Focused Therapy for Eating Disorders - 2 day Interactive Training Workshop

Monday 19th - Tuesday 20th November 2018 at BPS London Offices, Tabernacle Street, London

Despite a notable increase in empirical research over the last decade, eating disorders (ED) remain notoriously difficult to treat. Schema therapy offers a way of conceptualising and working with eating disorder symptoms whilst flexibly accommodating and working with broader personality features.

This two-day highly interactive, workshop will cover fundamental concepts and techniques of schema theory and therapy (ST) including the assessment of schemas and modes, as well as core experiential change techniques. Participants will be shown how to integrate ST ideas when working with anorexia nervosa, and bulimia nervosa complicated by other issues such as the presence of Personality Disorder.

Learning outcomes and objectives

  • Learn the basic principles and techniques of schema therapy and how to apply these to complex ED presentations using a schema mode formulation.
  • Practice all core ST techniques as applied to both anorexia nervosa and complex bulimia including: chair work, imagery work, empathic confrontation and using the therapy relationship for change (limited re-parenting). Techniques will be demonstrated via live role play demonstration by the facilitators, the use of video clips and supervised practice by participants.
  • Learning will be consolidated via an eating disorders case discussion session in which members of the group will have the opportunity to bring case material to be worked with.

Delegate fees can be found on the booking form. If you have any queries please contact us via the event hotline on 01332 224507.
