Dialectical Behaviour Therapy – Eating Disorder – Advance

Presented by: Dr. Anita Federici, Ph.D., C.Psych.

(On-line Virtual Workshop)

Eating disorder treatment is complex and clinicians often report feeling “stuck” and unsure how best to proceed with complicated cases. Given the demand for consultation in the application of DBT for eating disorders, this training was designed to take a deeper dive into commonly asked questions. Through didactic presentation, case studies, role-plays, and practice exercises, participants can expect an engaging and thought-provoking workshop.

 Workshop Objectives

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify and build collaborative case conceptualizations using the six DBT dialectical dilemmas among those with EDs
  2. Gain a more advanced understanding of the use of the target hierarchy with complex cases
  3. Develop DBT strategies to manage weight goals, medical risk, food tracking, and the weighing of patients
  4. Describe specific DBT skills and interventions to target body image disturbances
  5. Apply specific protocols for observing limits, applying contingencies, and using therapy vacations


Additional topics to be covered include:

– Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions, consult, and present challenging cases

– Managing medical risk in the context of suicide and self-injury

– Using dialectical and stylistic strategies to build a life worth living in a world obsessed with dieting, thinspiration, and intermittent fasting.

– Working with parents, families, and caregivers

Please note, this training is designed for healthcare providers who have foundational training in eating disorders and in DBT.
