CBT-T is a 10-session therapy for adults and adolescents with non-underweight eating disorders (including bulimia nervosa, atypical anorexia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and others).
CBT-T (the T stands for ‘ten’) has been under development and testing since 2013, as we wanted to be clear about its effectiveness. Once we had established a clear evidence base for CBT-T and we were happy that it worked, we launched it at the 2019 Academy for Eating Disorders Conference in New York.
In May 2019, the CBT-T manual was published, so that any clinician can use it. You can find the manual here (https://www.routledge.com/Brief-Cognitive-Behavioural-Therapy-for-Non-Underweight-Patients-CBT-T/Waller-Turner-Tatham-Mountford-Wade/p/book/9780367192297), via Amazon, or in your friendly bookstore.
In the manual, you can read about the origins of CBT-T, its evidence base, the techniques that you can apply to help your patients get the maximum benefit out of this treatment, and the therapeutic principles that will guide your implementation of CBT-T.
More recently (somewhat delayed by COVID), we have recorded some video clips demonstrating the key skills in CBT-T. The YouTube links to these are now available here. Apologies that the sound quality is shaky in places – we had to record them online, for now.
