“Using Temperament Based Treatment with Supports (TBT-S) for Children and Adolescents with FBT as the Backbone

In this webinar, Dr. Knatz-Peck, Associate Professor of Psychiatry University of California San Diego (UCSD) will discuss how for children and adolescents, Temperament Based Treatment with Supports (TBT-S) can be used to complement traditional Family Based Treatment Approaches (FBT). TBT-S for children and adolescents focuses on using interactive and experiential exercises to educate family members on known brain alterations that lead to anorexia to build empathy and understanding. Additionally, TBT-S delivers parent-driven skills that address these brain disturbances and are catered towards the unique temperament and personality profile that often accompanies AN. This webinar will provide an overview of TBT-S for children and adolescents and review associated parenting and psychoeducational tools.
