This a new membership group for any financial member of ANZAED who has a particular interest in the integration of psychodynamic theory and practice within evidence informed treatment for eating disorders. The group will meet four times a year via video-conferencing and during the annual ANZAED conference.
Through presentations, discussions and readings, this SIG will enable clinicians to share and develop ideas on how a psychodynamic approach can shed light on the development and maintenance of eating disorders, the importance of understanding transference and countertransference within the therapeutic relationship, and to respond to the growing acknowledgment of the need for formulation driven work with children, adolescents and adults, regardless of which modality is being used.
The group will provide a forum for:
– Information sharing and exploration (curiosity is more important than prior knowledge)
– Identifying and discussing common points of interest relating to psychodynamic/psychoanalytic theory and practice
– Education opportunities (including outreach, specialist webinars etc.)
Co-chairs: Dr Annaleise Robertson ([email protected]) and Chris Thornton
