Temperament Based Therapy with Supports (TBT-S)

Temperament Based Therapy with Supports (TBT-S)

About this event

Temperament-Based Therapy with Supports (previously known as NEW FED TR) is a new treatment approach focused on integrating cutting edge information about the brain-basis of eating disorders into treatment. TBT-S focuses on arming clinicians with experiential activities and highly-focused skills to teach clients and carers/supports reasons that eating disorders occur, and concrete and applicable skills that can be used to combat disordered eating behavior. Clinicians and carers learn how to address eating behavior in EDs from a brain basis based on the latest information from a neuroscientific perspective. Studies evaluating TBT-S suggest that the effect of approaching treatment from a scientific perspective, as is taught in TBT-S,  leads to high client and carer satisfaction, enhancing both clients’  and supports/carers’ motivation to engage in treatment and a higher degree of self-efficacy.

 




Requirement

 In a one day format, clinicians and carers will learn about the following

  • Basics of neurobiology of eating disorders
  • Menu of traits & heritability
  • Developing neurobiology literacy (clinicians and carers):  
  • Using neurobiological understanding to work with the person with AN & their family/supports
  • Negotiating and developing behavioural contracts
  • Helpful tools for family/supports and clients

 

Carers will come away with greater understanding about what is driving the eating disorders​ and valuable skills for working with their loved one. 

Clinicians: please note that the one day event is Day 1 of the 4 day training. It will set the basics upon which the rest of the training will draw from

EDFA has deliberately brought clinicians and carers together for this day to recognise that both are critical members of the team and can learn from each other as well as the TBT-S presenters.
