About the event
We are pleased to announce the Link between Eating disorders and Autism: PEACE pathway Conference on Tuesday 27 February.
We will be presenting an overview of our work, including outcomes, learning points and specially developed resources for clinicians and teams of health professionals working in this area.
The PEACE Pathway is an innovative Pathway for Eating disorders and Autism developed from Clinical Experience. Our research suggests that around a third of people with an eating disorder may be autistic, or present with high autistic traits. Whilst autistic people with eating disorders require adapted treatments, prior to this pathway there was no systematic guidance or support for clinicians working with this population.
With the PEACE Pathway, we have introduced a specialised treatment track for autistic people, and people with high autistic traits, in our national eating disorder service in South London and Maudsley NHS Trust. This has included regular support and supervision for clinicians, the provision of training in recognising and adapting treatments around autism, and an autism assessment pathway for individuals with high features but no prior diagnosis.
We hope that attendees will be able to take some of our experience and ideas back to their clinic and be interested in developing collaboration with our team.
If interested, you are welcome to purchase Professor Kate Tchanturia’s book Supporting Autistic People with Eating Disorders: A Guide to Adapting Treatment and Supporting Recovery.
