The Psychotherapy Section of the British Psychological Society announce their Annual Conference which this year will address the subject of psychotherapeutic work with Eating Disorders.

We are choosing to reframe the issue asking whether we need to think about eating as a disorder or as a quest for physical and psychological wellbeing that is full of mistaken beliefs and pitfalls.

Professionals in the field working with the risks and intransigence of the condition will know the demands and personal costs of the work where the natural process and function of eating becomes a matter of fear and avoidance.

In this conference we wish to nourish our practice and we have drawn on multi-modal schools of thought to support your knowledge and skills and to support you to think with clarity about your clients and patients.

Learning Outcomes and Objectives

  1. Increased understanding of Multi-modal methods for work with Eating Disorders.
  2. Increased skill in practitioner self care when working in the field.
  3. Increase capacity to reflect on issues of intransigence.
  4. Reframing of the goals of the patient with an Eating Disorder patients.
