Conference Brochure

Psychological Approaches for Clients with Weight Concerns is organized by The Australian Centre for Eating Disorders (ACFED) and will be held from Nov 23 - 25, 2020 at Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Suitability:
The course is suitable for counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists, addiction specialists, doctors, psychiatrists, dietitians, nutritionists, nurses and social workers at all levels of experience and qualification.

Course Description:
Our 3-Day course teaches specific skills for working with adults with weight concerns by addressing the practical and psychological factors they may be experiencing.

We take a non diet approach to this issue and concentrate instead on equipping people with skills and solutions they might need to increase self efficacy and autonomy. Our approach encourages individuals to reject weight and shape goals and to concentrate instead on health behaviour change and body acceptance.

This course can also be taken as a 'stand alone' option for those health professionals who are simply looking to enhance their skills in the area of clients with weight concerns.

You will learn about:
• Understanding the mechanics of weight gain and weight loss
• Maintaining factors, a model for treatment
• Working with ambivalence - useful exercises and tests
• Motivational approaches
• Hunger and appetite
• Relationship issues, self-sabotage and collusion
• Mindset interventions
• Emotional and comfort eating
• Dealing with psychological plateaus
• Body image interventions.

After the Course:
Health professionals who complete the Psychological Approaches for Clients with Weight Concerns course will become an ACFED approved practitioner. You can choose to be included on our database and receive referrals via our website.

Your work in the field of Clients with Weight Concerns will be in demand, and may increase your profitability if you are in private practice and/or may increase your future employment prospects.

ACFED approved practitioners will be able to use our logo to promote their skills, and they will receive referrals, network news and offers.

This course can also be taken in addition to our 5-Day Eating Disorders Essentials course and our 3-Day Practical Skills for Eating Disorders Course to elevate you to Silver or Gold ACFED Approved Practitioner status.

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
