This workshop will provide an overview of the current understanding of the role of the neurobiological underpinnings in the development and maintenance of anorexia nervosa with their implications for prognosis and treatment. The workshop will include a brief introduction of the neurobiology of the brain and the application of general neuroscientific principles of learning to the facilitation of therapeutic change. It will explore the effects of eating disorder behaviour and malnutrition on the brain and will highlight the effects of illness duration on neuroprogression and habit formation and the resulting urgency for early and effective intervention.
The workshop will explore in depth how these neuroscientific principles can be applied in a practical way to the provision of the current evidence best practice treatments like FBT, CBT-E and MANTRA.
The workshop will have interactive components and will allow for ample time of discussion. The workshop is primarily suitable for clinicians familiar with the specialist eating disorder therapies. Some experience in clinical neuroscience will be helpful but is not essential.
