Skrócony opis:

Welcome to the module of Working with Eating Disorder. From this

module, you will learn about different types of Eating Disorders and the

appropriate treatment options. This module weights more on the clinical

practice side where you will learn to perform assessment, treatment and

participate in multi-disciplinary team meetings.

Pełny opis:

Having an eating disorder is neither a lifestyle choice, a ‘diet gone wrong’,

nor an attempt to get attention. A person with an eating disorder has a

mental health condition. Eating disorders are serious, potentially fatal

conditions, and most people with eating disorders need psychological

treatment and/or physical health treatment (e.g. nutritional advice) to

promote recovery.

An eating disorder is marked by extremes. It is present when a person

experiences severe disturbance in eating behaviour, such as extreme

reduction of food intake or extreme overeating, or feelings of extreme

distress or concern about body weight or shape. Eating disorder stands

out from other mental disorders due to its complexity and high comorbidity.

Eating disorders are treatable medical illnesses with complex underlying

psychological and biological causes. They frequently co-exist with other

psychiatric disorders such as depression, substance abuse, or anxiety

disorders. People with eating disorders also can suffer from numerous

other physical health complications, such as heart conditions or kidney

failure, which can lead to death.

Psychological and medicinal treatments are effective for many eating

disorders. However, the effectiveness is jeopardised when many patients

do not think that they are will, such as patients with Anorexia Nervosa, or

patients with Bulimia Nervosa who may turn to food for emotion


The aim of this course is to provide a summary of eating disorders and the

treatment options. It focuses on issues around potential cause, diagnosis,

early intervention, and treatment options, concentrating primarily on

psychological therapies and baseline medical interventions.

The course will particularly focus on one treatment approach: CBT-ED

Oxford Model. This is a treatment approach developed and currently

piloted at Warneford Hospital, Oxford; it aims to address the broad

maintaining mechanisms of eating disorder.

The module provider has experience in investigating, developing and

delivering treatment therapies and long-term care programmes to those

with eating disorders. This module will introduce the concept of the major

Eating Disorders and the following psychological treatment options in

combination with medical treatment:

1. Support and Monitoring

2. Guided Self-help

3. CBT-E

4. CBT-ED Oxford Model

5. Family-based Treatment (FBT)

6. Focal Psychodynamic Therapy (FPT) for Anorexia Nervosa
