Includes a cultural adaptation for the Orthodox Jewish population
If you work with Orthodox Jewish clients, the odds that you’ll encounter a client with an eating disorder isn’t low. With a life-threatening disorder, you don’t want to take any chances.
Referring to an ED expert without the proper knowledge and cultural sensitivity can create concerns about what that will mean for your client.
This training helps clinicians learn how DBT has been adapted for eating disorders and how to decide which DBT treatment (standard DBT, DBT for emotional eating, RO DBT or DBT for complex/co-morbid patients) is appropriate for which individuals. It aims to help providers prioritize eating disorder and suicidal behaviors in the context of DBT Targets and gain clarity on the medical complications that may arise when treating eating disorders. Clinicians of all training backgrounds are welcome.
Amy’s teaching style is incredibly helpful. She’s on point with enough space for deviation that it feels safe to ask more questions.
Thank you thank you thank you! This was such a great training. Amy is incredibly skilled, knowledgeable, and engaging. She made me go from being afraid to work with folks with ED to wanting to ask for a new client with ED. I have a lot to learn still (obviously), but I feel more knowledgeable and empowered to ask questions
I enjoyed watching the chain analysis with a group participant – it was helpful to watch and see how Amy nimbly jumps between areas and keeps the client engaged.
