About the event

In recent years Eating Disorder Clinicians have struggled to keep up to the demand and provide support to individuals and families impacted by Eating Disorders. This training is led by Carly Crawford who has worked in the field since 2009 both as a private therapist and an advocate. Carly has spent a good portion of her career devoted to enhancing knowledge and understanding of Eating Disorders in the Health Care Community and has offered various trainings  and has supervised many therapists over the years. 

As a team here at CCP we are slowly working at increase the number of clinicians who are confident and capable of working with the increasing number of people who are in need of support.  After successfully running Body Brave's ED Sensitive Training course twice last year, we recognized the need to dive deeper into the topics discussed and offer a Part Two of this important training. 

Eating Disorder Sensitive Training for Professionals Part Two will cover 6 main elements:

1. A review of the clinical features of eating disorders: Part one did a fantastic job of outlining the diagnostic criteria of each Eating Disorder listed in the DSM. Part two of the training will go over limitations of diagnosis and how Eating Disorders are generally presenting in community settings such as private practice.  This section will include case studies and examples of clinical features we see in private practice. 

2. Ethical considerations when working with the ED population:  As clinicians treating Eating Disorders we often playing the role of multiple practitioners.  There are risks associated with working with this complex illness and strategies and structure that can be put in place to ensure we are providing the best care for those in need. This section will cover tips on what limits and boundaries should be put in place in treating individuals in an out-patient setting, how to consult effectively with the medical community and how to engage with clients who are unable/not ready to access higher level's of care if needed. 

3. Planning and Approaches to care: Overview of key components of DBT, ACT, EFT and FBT methods of therapy as they are applied in a psychotherapy setting. This section will go over in more details (as a continuation from Part 1 of the training) some examples of how to put these modalities into practice. We will offer examples, go steps in treatment  and discuss costs and benefits of limiting yourself to one modality when working with this population. 

4. Barriers and Setbacks: This section will cover how to provide best practice care when your client's are struggling. We know this work can be slower to progress  and often clients require support for a long time. As clinicians it can be hard to watch your clients struggle with their illness and hard not to be discouraged by the speed at which change can happen. This section will go over common barriers to wellness and identify setbacks and how to overcome them.  

5.  Creating, understanding and implementing a multi-disciplinary approach to care. This section covers how a multi-disciplinary approach to care works and how to implement that with your clients. We will go over scope of practice for Dietitians, Naturopaths, Family Medicine and how they fit into the model of care for those impacted by Eating Disorders. 

6. Implementing Carers and other In-formal supports in care: In this section we will cover the role and impact Eating Disorders have on the family. Part one will cover how to support family members and part two will cover how to utilize family and other support people in the treatment of someone with an Eating Disorder. 

During this 5 hour workshop we will have the opportunity to expand on concepts, discuss case studies and dive more in depth into the clinical interventions identified in this training that every health care professional can benefit from.
