We are pleased to announce the release of our latest set of consumer modules – Break Free From ED. These modules provide clear, scientific information about eating disorders and guide consumers through key components of cognitive behavioural therapy for eating disorders (CBT-ED). The modules cover features of eating disorders and associated risks, common maintaining factors, establishing weekly weighing, using self-monitoring to understand patterns of eating as well as other eating disorder thoughts and behaviours, steps towards eating regularly, adequately, and including feared foods as part of recovery, and how to use behavioural experiments to test out fears. Binge eating, purging and driven exercise are addressed before body checking and body avoidance interventions are introduced. The role of negative core beliefs in keeping people vulnerable to eating disorder behaviours are also examined, and strategies are provided to challenge these core beliefs. Finally, the modules assist with setting up a relapse prevention action plan.
The Break Free From ED modules are informed by evidence-based treatments, and reference materials by leading eating disorder clinicians including Glenn Waller, Christopher Fairburn and Tracey Wade. You can find this new addition to our free consumer resources on our website, under the Workbook - Break Free from ED heading (within the Disordered Eating section). The modules are designed so that consumers can either complete them independently or with the assistance of a mental health professional, and they also serve as a great resource for professionals wanting to learn more about eating disorders.
Every year, CCI modules are downloaded thousands of times all over the world; and in just two weeks since the Break Free from ED workbook was published, resources from this set of module have already been downloaded over 10,000 times!
