F.E.A.S.T.’s Australia & New Zealand Task Force
The Task Force seeks to:
- share information about eating disorder treatment across all Australian States and Territories and New Zealand
- address eating disorders issues and concerns specifically relevant in an Australian and New Zealand context
- raise awareness about F.E.A.S.T in Australia and New Zealand
- promote F.E.A.S.T’s goals
- encourage use of the website and the At the Dinner Table forum
The task force is chaired by Belinda Caldwell and reports to the FEAST Executive and Board. Tasks to be undertaken will be subject to approval by the F.E.A.S.T executive, and in some instances by the F.E.A.S.T board.
The F.E.A.S.T task force has been instrumental to the running of the 3 At Home with Eating Disorders conferences in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney.

If you choose to join the task force, you will need to be prepared to share with the group your email address and the State or Territory where you live.

Regional Resources for Families
Temperament Based Therapy with Supports (TBT-S)
Workshops and Training
Clinicians and carers learn how to address eating behaviour in EDs from a brain basis based on the latest information from a neuroscientific perspective.
Come & learn from the founders of TBT-S about this new evidence informed multi-family treatment for patients 16 and over with Anorexia Nervosa (AN). The temperament‐focused treatment combines psychoeducation of AN neurobiology and involvement of supports (families/carers) to develop skills to manage traits contributing to disease chronicity. Both the one day workshop and the 4 day training will address how to
- better manage eating disorder symptoms by working with AN traits
- reduce mealtime avoidance and distress
- increase effectiveness of client-support interactions to support recovery
TBT-S workshop, Auckland, 11 February 2019
Three international experts, Laura Hill, Stephanie Peck and Christina Wierenga, highly regarded in the treatment and research of eating disorders, will present this one-day workshop for carers and clinicians. The workshop will introduce Temperament Based Therapy with Supports (TBT-S) a brain-based therapy approach for Anorexia Nervosa for those aged 16 and over, that complements other evidence-based treatments currently available for this serious condition. https://bit.ly/2qlrlA8
