With the addition of Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder
(ARFID) to the broader DSM-5 category of Feeding and Eating Disorders,
increasing numbers of patients are presenting for treatment of this conditionThis
workshop will present an integrated treatment approach that combines an adapted
form of family based treatment (FBT) for patients with ARFID, called FBT-ARFID,
with the Unified Protocol for the Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional
Disorders (UP), a manualized, transdiagnostic cognitive behavioral treatment
that has been adapted for children and adolescents. The UP is well suited for
all categories of ARFID as it includes modules on mindfulness, flexible
thinking, avoidance, and both interoceptive and situational exposures. This workshop will demonstrate how to deliver
this novel integrative treatment by focusing first on nutritional stabilization
and regain of weight, using principles of family based treatment. Role plays will be used to demonstrate key adaptations of FBT for ARFID. An overview
of the UP will be presented with interactive exercises to show modules and
techniques used in treating young patients with ARFID. The workshop will provide case examples and
discussions for patients with different categories of ARFID, and will include a
detailed discussion of the use of rewards for behavior change. Specific active
learning techniques will include audience participation in role plays demonstrating
how to engage the family during the family meal, and group participation in
mindfulness exercises and exposures.
