Family-Based Treatment (FBT-AN) is recognised as the first line, evidence-based, early intervention model of care for adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN). FBT-AN has been developed and researched worldwide since the 1990s. CEED has developed and delivered FBT-AN training over several years to provide workforce development in this model to suit Victorian Service conditions. In the last ten years CEED has trained to over 1000 clinicians and provided service development and consultation support to implement the FBT-AN model of care in many Victorian CAMH / CYMH Services.

This event will cover:

  • A background understanding of the historical influences on the development of FBT-AN
  • A thorough understanding of FBT-AN practice assumptions and treatment phases
  • Capacity to set up and conduct FBT-AN with a young person and their family
  • Capacity to address clinical dilemmas that arise during FBT-AN
  • Understanding of how to implement FBT-AN as an integrated care model across local CAMHS and Paediatric Services
