Executive Summary:

Over eating is a devastating problem for millions of people. In many parts of the developed world, food is so plentiful and of such a high quality and attractiveness that consumption has rocketed, with consequent problems in terms of health, fitness, relationships and career. Many approaches show little signs of helping: any weight loss is either minimal or short lived. It is therefore imperative to think in terms of a well-structured approach based on an effective therapeutic theory.

Who should attend this DBT course?

People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:

1. Professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings, and wish to increase their ability in working with problems around eating.

2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking either to boost their level of expertise or to develop a common approach.

The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and others.

Option 3: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
