Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT)
Presented by: Professor Kate Tchanturia and her team
The aim of this workshop is to relate theoretical knowledge of cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) for anorexia nervosa (AN) as well as teach and practice the skills required to use CRT with this patient group.
There is robust evidence from neuropsychological laboratory research that patients with AN exhibit a trait of cognitive inflexibility (poor ‘set-shifting’ Westwood et al 2016, Tchanturia et al, 2017, 2014) as well as having an extreme detail focused thinking style (Lang et al 2016).
CRT aims to target these thinking processes through simple exercises, reflection, behavioural experiments and guided supervision.
The topics covered in the workshop include:
- Theoretical background of CRT
- How CRT is tailored for use with people with Anorexia Nervosa
- Preliminary findings from pilot research and randomised treatment trials
- Group format using CRT principles
- Working with adolescents
- Feedback letters from patients and therapists
- How CRT contributes to general formulation and treatment programme
- Recent neuroimaging findings
- Future Developments
The workshop will include teaching, video presentations, role play and practice in small groups.
Professor Kate Tchanturia and her research and clinical team will present research and practical applications.
