This webinar will detail the evidence for CBT for eating disorders, and the structure and content of this therapy. The majority of the workshop will be dedicated to skills training. Participants will be shown a range of CBT-ED techniques in action, and will be encouraged to undertake those techniques in order to learn how to apply them appropriately. The skills to be developed will include:

• How to handle the first few sessions to encourage maximum short- and long-term benefits
• Exposure therapy related to changes in eating (and weight, where appropriate)
• Behavioural experiments used to change cognitions
• Cognitive restructuring to address different levels of cognitions
• Exposure therapy related to wider emotional concerns
• Body image treatment, based on identifying and targeting specific maintaining factors
• Ending therapy appropriately

Whether you join live on the day, or at a later time(s), you will have access to the full recording until 20 November 2023. This gives you the flexibility to join for all or part of the day or to watch the recording whenever fits in with your commitments
