Introductory 2 Day CPD Event on Focal Psychodynamic (FPT) Psychotherapy for Anorexia Nervosa

Go Back


The psychotherapeutic treatment of anorexia nervosa is challenging as patients show a strong fixation to their symptoms and a lack of disease insight combined with a partial disease denial.

The workshop will start with a short overview on the scientific evidence for individual outpatient psychotherapy in adult anorexia nervosa patients.

In the main part of the workshop the manual of the evidence-based focal psychodynamic psychotherapy will be presented.

The starting point for treatment is a detailed initial interview, in accordance with the Operationalised Psychodynamic Diagnosis System (OPD). The three-phase psychodynamic treatment is centred around a specific therapeutic focus derived from the OPD interview.
