Cognitive-Behavior Therapy-Enhanced (CBT-E) for Eating Disorders

A Training for College Health Professionals & Campus-Based Providers


The Center for Eating Disorders proudly presents…
Cognitive-Behavior Therapy-Enhanced (CBT-E) for Eating Disorders
Facilitated by: Laura Sproch, Ph.D.

DESCRIPTION:  Cognitive-behavioral therapy- enhanced (CBT-E), developed by Christopher Fairburn, is the current evidence-based treatment for adults struggling with eating disorders.  This presentation will provide an overview of the CBT-E protocol, which is important as a review for clinicians who are more familiar with CBT-E and as a crucial learning experience for clinicians who are not yet implementing this protocol.   Following this presentation, attendees should have a basic understanding of the CBT-E protocol and how to access additional resources and training opportunities, in the hopes that this will improve treatment for patients with eating disorders.

WHEN: Monday, February 12, 2018 from 10:00 AM -12:00 PM.

Following the CEU lecture, there will be an opportunity for professionals to network with other college health professionals from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
