Compassion Focused Therapy for Eating Disorders (Hobart)

Hosted by Kiera Buchanan, Centre For Integrative Health

  • Hobart: May 16

  • Melbourne: June 27

  • Sydney: September 18

  • Brisbane: October 31


People with eating and body-image concerns generally experience high levels of self-criticism, self-directed hostility and shame. Furthermore, these individuals tend to have difficulties generating and activating affiliative and self-soothing emotions.

Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) was developed specifically to addresses these issues in presentations resistant to standard treatment approaches. Since then, CFT for eating disorders (CFT-E) has been designed to incorporate compassion-focused strategies into standard eating disorder treatment approaches.This workshop will describe

  1. the theoretical rationale for a compassion focused approach as part of eating disorder treatment

  2. the adaptation and incorporation of CFT-E within standard eating disorder therapies

  3. a review of the current evidence-base for CFT-E, and

  4. the use of CFT-E in clinical practice across the spectrum and various modes of inpatient-and community-based services.


Learning Objectives

By the end of the workshops, participants will:
1. Possess an understanding of the foundations and principals of Compassion Focused Therapy
2. Develop a CFT formulation of clients’ eating and weight concerns.
3. Integrate a CFT approach into current treatment modalities.

Jessica Setnick's Eating Disorders Boot Camp (Boston)

Hosted by Jessica Setnick/Understanding Nutrition


EATING DISORDERS BOOT CAMP: NEXT GENERATION is the premier training workshop to bridge the gap between academic research and the practical tools you need right now to help your patients and clients. 

Unlike typical conference sessions where the topic is totally pre-planned and only a few minutes are set aside for questions, EATING DISORDERS BOOT CAMP: NEXT GENERATION provides a truly interactive framework in which the needs of the participants always direct the course.

Every EATING DISORDERS BOOT CAMP: NEXT GENERATION is different, and topics are determined by the areas of practice and specific concerns brought forward by attendees.

Whether you have been in practice a short time or many years, if you spend your day helping individuals with dysfunctional eating (and who doesn't?) then EATING DISORDERS BOOT CAMP: NEXT GENERATION is for you. 

If you need a confidence boost, an update on the latest and greatest, confirmation that you're "doing it right," or the nuts and bolts of eating disorder treatment, reserve your spot in one of the upcoming locations for the most comprehensive and practical workshop you will attend.

 

 

What your colleagues have said about EATING DISORDERS BOOT CAMP: NEXT GENERATION:

"I don't know how she made the time speed by like that, but Jessica's enthusiasm and great ideas had me engaged and invested from minute one... and after a day and a half, I didn't want it to end!"

"I don't know how I did my job before this workshop. I can tell I'll be doing it a LOT better now."

"Before I got here I worried that it was a big investment of time and money. But the tools I learned and the boundary advice are priceless. It would still be worth it for twice the price."

 

 

EATING DISORDERS BOOT CAMP: NEXT GENERATION workshops are held from 9am-4pm the first day and 9am-noon the second day. Your registration fee includes:

EATING DISORDERS BOOT CAMP: NEXT GENERATION Manual, including all slides, articles, handouts and resources discussed in the workshop;

A Certificate of Completion for all professions, including 9 CEUs for Registered Dietitians;

Breakfast on both days and lunch on the first day;

Copies of both of Jessica's books, The Eating Disorders Clinical Pocket Guide, Second Edition and The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Pocket Guide to Eating Disorders, Second Edition.

One and a half days of PERSONAL attention from Jessica - Eating Disorders Boot Camp: NEXT GENERATION workshops are limited in size to ensure that you get exactly what you need.



Can't wait to see you there!

P.S. - Don't see a location that fits? All you need to bring ED Boot Camp to your area in 2018 is 10-12 interested attendees and a room to accommodate them for two days! Get in touch with Celena at info@UnderstandingNutrition.com or 214-503-7100 and let's make it happen!

Non Diet Approach Workshop For Dietitians

  • Fremantle Perth Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Hosted by Fiona Sutherland & Fiona Willer

Day 1: Weight Science, Non Diet Principles to Practice

Day 2: Communication & Social Justice Frameworks

Due to the success of the two day series over the last few years, Fiona Willer (Health Not Diets) and Fiona Sutherland (The Mindful Dietitian) will continue to offer two types of non-diet approach workshops designed especially for dietitians. The first is a two day workshop for dietitians who have not previously attended non-diet approach training, or who may like some revision and an update on research.  The Day 2 workshop is suitable for those who are looking to extend and consolidate their skills. The workshops are on consecutive days so that you can choose to come to both day 1 and 2, or just day 2. 

Day 1:

With a thorough exploration of the evidence base as well as experiential and self reflective activities, this event will support to you develop sound foundational competence in using the Non Diet Approach with your clients and patients. This practical workshop is perfect for Dietitians working in private practice, weight management clinics & clinical outpatient services. Includes a copy of The Non Diet Approach Guidebook for Dietitians

Find out about:

  • The history of Health At Every Size (HAES) ® & Non Diet Approaches

  • Research informing the Non Diet Approach, evidence base & practice-based research possibilities

  • The five core components of the Non Diet Approach in detail

  • Specific strategies, tools & worksheets to use with your clients

  • The most common tripping points

  • Specifically how to integrate the Non Diet Approach into the Nutrition Care Process including nutrition diagnosis & PESS statement development

Day 2:

Suitable for anyone who has attended Day 1 at any time, this full day workshop is designed both as a next step from the Day 1 foundational training as well as ongoing skill development for more experienced Non Diet Approach practitioners.

In 2019, our theme is Social Justice & Communication (new material)

Non Diet Approach is a practice framework built within the Health At Every Size ® paradigm, with a strong social justice foundation. Together, we will explore social justice both as an idea, and as a practice & how it intersects with Non Diet Approach-based care. Starting off with definition of terms, we’ll dig into some of the nuance & complexity of promoting equity & justice for all bodies in a culture which can make this really tough! We’ll offer not only our own experience, but provide you with a ton of resources you can explore in your own time to more deeply embed these ideas into your practice.

Using various frameworks, we will discuss & explore ways we can more effectively communicate with clients, colleagues & health practitioners so that we feel more grounded and confident in our messaging. Calling upon evidence-based care AND social justice frameworks, we want you to leave feeling like you can have tough conversations from a place of kindness & stability.

Don’t worry if you haven’t integrated Non Diet into every element on your practice (we understand that it takes time, or it may all be very new!) – this workshop will support you to build confidence & work through sticking points.

Bring your questions, and we’ll make sure to allocate time for digging in, as well as networking & enjoying delicious food!

Weight Inclusive Nutrition & Dietetics Symposium

Weight Inclusive Nutrition & Dietetics Symposium

Hosted by Heather Caplan

Are you curious about what it means to take a weight-inclusive approach to nutrition and dietetics? Want to learn more about the research on weight stigma, and weight cycling?

Join us at the inaugural Weight-Inclusive Nutrition & Dietetics Workshop!

As nutrition professionals, we’re constantly in search of the best, evidence-based method for helping our clients and patients. As the non-diet approach as grown in popularity, there often seems to be widening divide between this approach and traditional dietetics.

But we are more united than we are divided.

We all have one essential thing in common: we want to help people. We are united in this shared reality. Our clients and patients need evidence-based nutrition education, guidance, and therapy, and more than anything, they need compassion. All nutrition professionals want to have the best tools at our disposal to do this important work.

This Weight-Inclusive Nutrition and Dietetics (WIND) event series was designed to open us up to these tough conversations, connect with and learn from each other, and unite our profession.

Transforming Trauma Through Food & Body Stories: Well Now Learning Circle with Lucy Aphramor
Oct
28
to Nov 1

Transforming Trauma Through Food & Body Stories: Well Now Learning Circle with Lucy Aphramor

well+now+banner+2.png

Hosted By Lilia Graue, Fiercely Embodied through Mindful Eating Mexico

A five-day intensive, advanced level workshop for participants interested in deep exploration of the hidden structures, beliefs and systems that shape conversation, practice and writing to impact health justice.

Core themes include:

  • Nutrition as social action

  • Thinking, un/feeling, learning through trauma

  • Why language matters

  • Matching theory and practice

Intended participants

Practitioners, activists, scholars committed to further exploring their use of a philosophy  grounded in weight-inclusivity and social justice.

Topics and Teaching Outline:

Using an emancipatory pedagogy we’ll adopt the principles of whole person learning, and draw on the collective wealth of expertise and experiences in the room. There will be guided learning, small and large group activities, discussion and reflection that engages learners in different ways of knowing and suits a range of learning styles.  We will take time to consider the implications of the learning to our own development and resilience and what this means for our professional practice. Lucy will draw on Well Now theory, which is compassion-centered, trauma-informed and justice-enhancing.  As well as helping us shape practice, looking through a trauma-informed lens also invites us to question the deep roots of organizational knowledge-creation where a ‘trauma-ignored’ approach is too often embedded. Activities will be based around concepts deemed useful for us to explore together and also schedule time later in the week that we can use to discuss topics decided on by the group after we meet.

 

Sample course objectives include:

  • Developing an understanding of and appreciation for the knowledge that already exists in the group and explore how this has been shaped by implicit and explicit values and beliefs and personal and professional experiences.

  • Improved understanding of what is meant by whole person learning, praxis and critical pedagogy and how this enhances trauma-informed practice and scholarship.

  • Expanded working knowledge of concepts from social justice, social science and the humanities that can help shape practice.

  • The opportunity to examine ‘thought as a system’, focusing on the deep roots of disconnect in language and learning ways to alter this in our everyday and therapeutic conversations.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the tensions, challenges and opportunities raised by conventional hierarchies, silences and processes in organizational knowledge creation, what this means for ethical autonomy, and how it supports or suppresses a trauma-informed discourse.

  • Critically examine the concept of salutogenesis and its relevance  to community learning and belonging.

The first is a two day workshop for dietitians who have not previously attended non-diet approach training, or who may like some revision and an update on research.  The Day 2 workshop is suitable for those who are looking to extend and consolidate their skills. The workshops are on consecutive days so that you can choose to come to both day 1 and 2, or just day 2. 

Day 1:

With a thorough exploration of the evidence base as well as experiential and self reflective activities, this event will support to you develop sound foundational competence in using the Non Diet Approach with your clients and patients. This practical workshop is perfect for Dietitians working in private practice, weight management clinics & clinical outpatient services. Includes a copy of The Non Diet Approach Guidebook for Dietitians

Find out about:

  • The history of Health At Every Size (HAES) ® & Non Diet Approaches

  • Research informing the Non Diet Approach, evidence base & practice-based research possibilities

  • The five core components of the Non Diet Approach in detail

  • Specific strategies, tools & worksheets to use with your clients

  • The most common tripping points

  • Specifically how to integrate the Non Diet Approach into the Nutrition Care Process including nutrition diagnosis & PESS statement development

Day 2:

Suitable for anyone who has attended Day 1 at any time, this full day workshop is designed both as a next step from the Day 1 foundational training as well as ongoing skill development for more experienced Non Diet Approach practitioners.

In 2019, our theme is Social Justice & Communication (new material)

Non Diet Approach is a practice framework built within the Health At Every Size ® paradigm, with a strong social justice foundation. Together, we will explore social justice both as an idea, and as a practice & how it intersects with Non Diet Approach-based care. Starting off with definition of terms, we’ll dig into some of the nuance & complexity of promoting equity & justice for all bodies in a culture which can make this really tough! We’ll offer not only our own experience, but provide you with a ton of resources you can explore in your own time to more deeply embed these ideas into your practice.

Using various frameworks, we will discuss & explore ways we can more effectively communicate with clients, colleagues & health practitioners so that we feel more grounded and confident in our messaging. Calling upon evidence-based care AND social justice frameworks, we want you to leave feeling like you can have tough conversations from a place of kindness & stability.

Don’t worry if you haven’t integrated Non Diet into every element on your practice (we understand that it takes time, or it may all be very new!) – this workshop will support you to build confidence & work through sticking points.

Bring your questions, and we’ll make sure to allocate time for digging in, as well as networking & enjoying delicious food!

Bringing Presence to Tough Conversations (San Diego)

Hosted by Fiona Sutherland

USD$225

A workshop for Dietitians and Therapists to build skills in navigating conversations, interactions and tricky moments - with clients, colleagues, anyone - with greater insight, presence and skillfulness. Focussing primarily on the practitioner experience (with skills you can share with your clients too!), we will be having important conversations about

WHY our presence matters
HOW we can cultivate specific types of awareness which makes a difference and
WHAT are the practical skills we can take into everyday practice and life with us.

 

What to Expect

Bringing together the important topics of Mindfulness and Body Image, you will leave this workshop feeling refreshed, confident and more capable of bringing your best into each and every contact you have with clients and colleagues.

Know exactly what to try when you're feeling sooooo "over it", and using your "tuning in skills" you'll be better equipped to handle those tough conversations around food, eating and body image.

Meet lots of people who share the same dilemmas as you, and will have your most burning questions answered. We'll dig into some tricky topics, have lots of discussion and definitely get into some practice! I'll aim to provide an environment where we can nudge your edges & support you to explore ways to elevate, deepen and broaden your skills.

Dive into one of my favourite topics of "integration" and how mindfulness practices (hint: it's not just about sitting on a cushion!) supports both our, and our clients healing, with particular emphasis on it's application with people we see who really struggle with their body image.

Geek on out with some of the research and I'll be sharing with you specific tools, skills and resources you can take with you into practice right away.

Sounds all too serious? Nah! We'll definitely have fun. Guaranteed.

You can expect this workshop to definitely be steeped in weight and body inclusive Health At Every Size (R) principles, no exceptions. All bodies are welcome (and please reach out to make sure we support you in any body inclusive way eg. seating, accessibility, dietary requirements)

 

FAQ's

  • Each day will begin at 9am sharp and finish at 4:30pm

  • Location can be found on the booking forms - NYC in in Midtown Manhattan, and San Diego is in Del Mar

  • If you are not a Dietitian, you are MORE than welcome. I am very familiar speaking with other professionals and you will find many of the same ideas highly applicable

  • Each location has a maximum of 50 participants to optimise a high quality experience. I will hold a waitlist if you miss out on a ticket.

  • If you came to one of the 2018 Body Image workshops I hosted with Marci Evans, great news! This workshop will build on (but not duplicate) content we discussed. The Body Image workshop, in full PLUS MORE, is now available online with special deals for past participants.

  • As a non-US resident, I am not able to provide CEU's (I'm so sorry!), but I commit to offering a high quality workshop will I hope you'll find super valuable.
