About the event

Join us April 26-28, 2023 live in Anchorage, Alaska for the first Level 2 TBT-S Certification Training in the United States! Be at the forefront of the latest evidence-based treatments for patients with eating disorders.

Location: BP Energy Center, Anchorage, Alaska (

Temperament-Based Therapy with Support (TBT-S) is a novel approach for  clients with eating disorders. Clients consistently report that it  increases their  motivation to change  and it improve outcomes. This treatment integrates genetic, neurobiological and temperament research into treatment applications to augment current therapies. While this training is focused on clinicians (therapists, dietitians, medical providers) who work with clients ages 16 and older, 85% of the training can be applied to adolescents and their parents/caregivers.

In this 3-day, highly interactive training, clinicians learn how to  help clients understand ED brain responses that cause various ED thoughts and feelings. The clinicians will then practice using the tools that help clients identify their temperament traits and use their own traits in a strength-based way to explore healthier responses through tested and structured problem solving activities. 

TBT-S is grounded and structured by five core principles from eating disordercneurobiological research: 1. Eating disorders are brain and biologically based illnesses. 2. Treat to the trait or the temperament underpinnings. 3. Food is medicine. 4. Supports are a necessary part of the treatment process. 5. Action or movement is fundamental to change.

Join AKEDA and TBT-S principal author Dr. Laura Hill, PhD for this live, in person 3-day training in Anchorage, Alaska at the BP Energy Center. Attendees will acquire 18 hours of CEs and meet all requirements to attain Level 2 TBT-S Certification. This will be a highly interactive and application-oriented conference where attendees will benefit from a detailed training with one of the world's most renowned eating disorder experts.
