Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Avoidant/Restrict

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Avoidant/Restrict

July 10, 2023 07:00 am - August 28, 2023 07:00 am
Massachusetts General Hospital: Psychiatry
Address: Virtual, Cambridge, MAUS
This course will provide specialized training in a new form of cognitive-behavioral therapy for avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (CBT-AR) that the organizers have developed and refined at Massachusetts General Hospital for patients ages 10 through older adults. Early data from preliminary efficacy studies indicate that, on average, patients who receive CBT-AR incorporate many novel foods into their regular diets, gain significant weight if underweight, and significantly reduce both ARFID symptom severity and food neophobia. This 6-week course will cover the assessment of ARFID and determining patient appropriateness of CBT-AR, as well as the implementation of 4 stages of this flexible, modular treatment.
