Our 2-Day course teaches health professionals this highly effective therapy tailored to the specific needs and characteristics of people with Anorexia Nervosa (AN)

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a highly distinctive disorder at the brain-body interface. Whilst therapeutically ‘malleable’ early on, once established it is remarkably persistent. It is also notoriously hard to treat. MANTRA or the ‘Maudsley Model of Anorexia Treatment in Adults’, is a novel and highly effective therapy tailored to the specific needs and characteristics of people with AN.

This two-day interactive, experiential, introductory workshop will teach participants key elements and techniques of MANTRA for different stages of treatment and how to sequence and integrate these in the treatment of adults with AN.
