Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E) was developed nearly 20 years ago by Christopher Fairburn, from his CBT for Bulimia Nervosa and based on his transdiagnostic theory (Fairbairn et al, 2003). Because of its application to all diagnoses and age groups, CBT-E has become one of the most utilised treatments in Australia and New Zealand. CBT/CBT-E/CBT-ED is recognised by the NICE Guidelines and by Australia’s Medicare system as a recommended treatment.
