CBT-E: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for eating disorders

CBT-E: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for eating disorders

About this event

This 2 day workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to enhanced CBT (CBT-E), the latest version of the leading empirically supported, outpatient psychological treatment for eating disorders.

The workshop draws on the work of Prof Christopher Fairburn, Director of the Centre for Research on Eating Disorders at Oxford University (CREDO), internationally recognised researcher and author, and Dr Anthea Fursland, researcher & principal psychologist of the Eating Disorders Program at the Centre for Clinical Investigations WA (CCI), and current president of the Australian & New Zealand Academy of Eating Disorders.

Participants will gain:

- A comprehensive introduction and overview of Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E)
- Understanding of the importance of client engagement, early behaviour change and addressing obstacles to change
- Understanding of how the transdiagnostic approach of CBT-E can be used with the full range of eating disorders seen in clinical practice
- Demonstrations of behavioural and cognitive interventions used in CBT-E to address:
   • Modification of behaviours and beliefs associated with over-evaluation of control of weight, shape and eating (eg food and physical activity-related safety and avoidance behaviours; body checking/avoidance)
   • Weight regain in underweight individuals

The training provides didactic, interactive & experiential practise opportunities. Prior knowledge of understanding and assessment of eating disorders, and basic CBT principles is assumed.


- Clinicians employed in Victorian public mental health services: $185.00  
- Other health professionals: $460.00


The CBT-E training forms part of the advanced treatment training component of the CEED comprehensive eating disorders training.
