Presented by Stephen Wonderlich, Ph.D. & Carol Peterson, Ph.D.
The purpose of this webinar will be to introduce participants to Integrative Cognitive-Affective Therapy for Bulimia Nervosa (ICAT-BN). Presenters will review the model of bulimic psychopathology underlying ICAT-BN, with a particular emphasis on the momentary emotional correlates of bulimic behavior and their role in precipitating eating disorder psychopathology. The webinar will focus on the clinical content of ICAT-BN including the phases of treatment, clinical targets, and psychotherapeutic techniques. The overarching clinical aim of ICAT-BN is to enhance patients’ awareness of momentary emotional factors that contribute to their eating disorder symptoms, identify emotion precipitants, and change behavioral responses to emotions. ICAT-BN is an emotion-focused treatment that emphasizes behavioral changes in eating patterns, coping strategies for urge management, and the use of skills. Finally, this webinar will provide a brief overview of clinical research examining the empirical evidence of ICAT-BN as well as recent adaptations of ICAT for the treatment of binge eating disorder.
