Course Details

This interactive course offers an overview of evidence-based psychological treatments for eating disorders in children, adolescents, and adults. Drs. Kamryn T. Eddy and Jennifer J. Thomas, Co-Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Eating Disorders Clinical and Research Program, will serve as the primary faculty for this course. First, Drs. Eddy and Thomas will discuss the key components of a comprehensive eating disorder assessment, including freely available self-report measures of eating disorder psychopathology. Next, Dr. Eddy will present the basic tenets and three phases of family-based treatment (FBT), an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. Finally, Dr. Thomas will present the basic tenets and four stages of enhanced cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT-E), an evidence-based treatment for adults with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and related presentations.

This course is designed for mental health professionals of all experience levels. We use a combination of interactive didactics, reading materials, and video role plays to both teach and demonstrate brief skills that you can easily implement into your own unique practice. Both Drs. Eddy and Thomas will demonstrate FBT and CBT-E skills in action during video role plays.

All content and assignments can be completed whenever your schedule allows. The course is accessible via desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet.
