Applying the VdTMoCA to team intervention for people with an eating disorder
Online module £50.00 (No VAT to add)
Although this module focuses on eating disorders, the demonstrated approach to understanding clients and challenging behaviours is extremely useful for application to any client, but especially those with a personality disorder or other 'disorders' such as OCD, due its attention to complexity.
This module is for Advanced Knowledge: Exploring theory.
This online module is suitable for occupational therapists who are trained and experienced in the Vona du Toit Model of Creative ability. Suitability criteria:
Through the lens of the theory of creative ability, complexity theory and eating disorder pathology, this one hour 20-minute online module is an in-depth exploration of why the rule within an inpatient adolescent unit that all young people must stay in the dining room until meals are finished (including individuals with an eating disorder), results in behaviour that challenges.
The module is a video recording of an online teaching session by a South African expert in the VdTMoCA for a team of occupational therapists who wished to address this issue together with their MDT in order to make the mealtime experiences less distressing and more successful experiences for clients and staff.
