Hosts / Moderators: Dr. Gail McVey and Catherine Ford
Eating Disorders Ontario  
Clinical Facilitator: Anita Federici, Ph.D., C.Psych, FAED
Invited expert on behalf of EDO

BIO:  Dr. Federici is internationally known for her comprehensive team training and clinical consultation.  She offers consulting in the following areas: clinical practice, research methods, program development, program evaluation, DBT and CBT implementation.
Objectives: Drawing from more than 20 years of direct and translational research, this two-day workshop will focus on utilizing DBT for clients who have not responded to standard ED interventions. There will be a specific emphasis on DBT theory, principles, and strategies as they relate to higher levels of care. Attention will be given to building commitment, collaborative case conceptualization, DBT skills for mealtimes and at the bedside, and the management of behaviours that typically interfere with treatment delivery.

Learning Objectives: 
1. Utilize a flowchart for determining who needs DBT -ED treatment.
2. Explain to clients the rationale for using DBT for the treatment of EDs.
3. Teach an adapted ED-specific Biosocial Theory to clients and families.
4. Increase commitment to ED-DBT treatment goals using six key strategies.
5. Using the target hierarchy to organize programming. 
6. Use dialectical strategies when managing weight, food, and treatment goals.
7. Integrate a novel ED-DBT diary card into practice.
8. Conduct chain or “missing link” analyses and/or group 
9. Intervene using DBT skills “on the fly” in day treatment and inpatient settings
10. Apply a step-by step protocol for targeting therapy interfering behaviour

This initial training will be followed by six half-day sessions to explore DBT strategies in more details, to work through cases and questions, and to support implementation efforts.
Target Audience
Mental health clinicians/psychotherapists in specialized eating disorders programs working in Ontario publicly-funded settings (no fee for service). 
This event is geared towards mental health providers who have a working knowledge of DBT and who have experience working in an eating disorders setting.
