Webinar 8:
How to Utilize ABFT When Family Therapy for Eating Disorder (FT/ED) Is Stuck
Date: Tues, January 31, 2023
Time: 2pm-3:30pm (Eastern Standard Time); 8pm-9:30pm (GMT+1)
Speaker: Julian Baudinet and Stamatoula Voulgari

Eating disorder focused family therapy (FT-ED) is typically the first-line recommended treatment for child and adolescent eating disorders internationally (Hilbert, et al., 2017). The treatment is phased and involves large amounts of parental support with eating in the first phases of treatment. While outcomes are good for most, FT-ED is not effective for all young people, with 10-40% (le Grange, 2014; Lock, 2015) having a mixed or poor outcome.

Research focused on identifying mediators and moderators of FT-ED outcome has consistently shown that family factors, such as criticism and parental emotional dysregulation and mentalizing capacities, may have an impact on FT-ED outcomes (Hamadi & Holliday, 2020; Jewell, et al., 2021). While most of the families we see generally present with positive relationships, some may be affected by the development of the eating disorder and/or some come to treatment with pre-existing disrupted attachment relationships.

One major assumption of the FT-ED model is that parental attempts to support their child to eat regularly are interpreted as care, rather than control and punishment. This, of course, is not the case for all young people who receive FT-ED, and there may be a sub-set for whom FT-ED needs to be adapted. For families with the circular dynamics of criticism, emotional dysregulation, sense of rejection and mistrust, ABFT principles and techniques may be particularly relevant, as they may help family members begin to connect in new ways and build trust.

This webinar will focus on our current work at the Maudsley Centre for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders (MCCCAED) in applying ABFT principles and techniques to standard FT-ED treatments for anorexia and bulimia nervosa in the outpatient and day-patient settings.

Program Objectives:

  • List indicators of poorer outcomes for eating disorder focused family therapy (FT-ED).
  • Discuss the different stages at which FT-ED clinicians and families can become stuck, and current practices for reformulating with families and adapting treatment.
  • Explain the adaptions needed when there is a lack of trust and/or attachment ruptures within the family, and the importance of attachment and relationship repair between caregivers and adolescents prior to them progressing with eating disorder treatments.

Target Audience

Counselors, Couple and Family Therapists, Mental Health Professionals, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, and Social Workers.

Webinar 1:
Attachment Based Care for Teams program
Date: Wed, December 2, 2020
Time: 7:30pm-9pm (GMT+1); 1:30pm-3pm (Eastern Standard Time)
Speaker: Ilse Devacht

ABC for Teams is a multi-tier program which teaches organizations to use attachment theory as a unifying clinical framework for all members of the treatment team. It was developed by Ilse Devacht at Asster Hospital in Belgium in collaboration with the ABFT Training Program and Professor Guy Bosmans at KU Leuven University in Belgium. The program can be implemented in in- and outpatient settings with the aim of supporting family work in restoring attachment ruptures between caregivers and kids. The ABC for Teams program consists of training, team supervision and guiding system change in order to create a secure learning environment for vulnerable youth to restore trust in help and care.

The program is characterised by its trans-diagnostic insights in dealing with emotional and behavioural problems. Firstly, emotional issues and problematic behaviour, often diagnosed as ‘pathology’, are viewed as ways of coping in human development when facing (extreme) distress. Secondly, team members are trained to analyse and guide behaviour based on the principles of learning theory, such as assessing behaviour’s function and meaning for clients. A third characteristic of the program is the emphasis on emotion focused conversation skills. A fourth and last aspect of the program is that it not only provides training for a team, but also engages a team and its leadership to rethink and reorganise their existing care program in alignment with the proposed attachment and learning theory insights.

For more info about ABC for teams:

Target Audience

Counselors, Couple and Family Therapists, Mental Health Professionals, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, and Social Workers. This first webinar is also appropriate for administrators and any frontline staff working with adolescents with mental health issues.

Program Objectives:

  • Describe the importance of expanding ABFT family therapy impact through collaborative team efforts in care.
  • Explain the attachment theory and learning theory foundations of the ABC for Teams program.
  • Summarize an overview of the ABC for Teams Program components.

Webinar 2:
Middle Childhood Attachment Therapy
Date: Tues, March 2, 2021
Time: 7:30pm-9pm (GMT+1); 1:30pm-3pm (Eastern Standard Time)
Speaker: Leen Van Vlierberghe & Guy Bosmans

In spite of a clear need in clinical practice, there is a worldwide lack of well-designed and critically evaluated attachment-focused interventions for middle childhood. To solve this gap, we developed Middle Childhood Attachment Therapy (MCAT) as a novel transdiagnostic treatment for children between 8 and 12 years of age suffering from emotion and behavior problems. MCAT is a 16 session parent-child intervention that shares its basic principles with the Attachment Based Family Therapy model.

In this webinar, we will outline and illustrate the child-friendly therapeutic strategies we developed to create ‘live’ (in session) learning events in which children’s support seeking behavior is reinforced by both a sensitive parental response and the experience of reduced distress in the child. This way, MCAT aims to increase children’s support seeking behavior by stimulating the development of trust in parental support as a buffer to further mental health decline. Lecture, Q & A, and case description examples are used throughout the presentation.

Target Audience

Counselors, Couple and Family Therapists, Mental Health Professionals, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, and Social Workers.

Program Objectives:

  • Explain MCAT’s theoretical foundation.
  • Describe the core mechanism and strategies of therapeutic change.
  • Discuss the four treatment stages and their specific goals.

Webinar 3:
Two Talks related to ABFT for LGBTQ+ Youth
Date: Tues, June 29, 2021
Time: 3pm-5pm (GMT+2); 9am-11am (Eastern Standard Time)
Speaker: Gary Diamond & Jody Russon

ABFT for Sexual and Gender Minority Young Adults and their Non-Accepting Parents
Gary Diamond will present the principles and intervention strategies for using ABFT to work with sexual and gender minority (SGM) young adults and their non-accepting parents. The first part of the talk will briefly review the variety of parental responses to their adult child’s SGM and the negative impact of ongoing parental rejection and non-acceptance on the young adult-parent relationship. Then, each of the five tasks of ABFT will presented, using descriptive and videotaped examples from work with this population. Differences between working with young adults, as opposed to adolescents, will be noted.

Program Objectives:

  • Describe the variety of rejecting and non-accepting parental responses to their child’s SGM identity, and how such responses negative impact upon the young adult and rupture the attachment relationship.
  • Describe how ABFT is applied to this population, including the need to help parents work through their own shame, fear and loss in order to be more responsive to their child’s feelings and unmet needs.
  • Illustrate the core ABFT processes, including in-session corrective attachment/identity episodes, using videotapes from genuine cases with this population.

ABFT for Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth presenting in LGBTQ+ Community Settings
Jody Russon will discuss clinical research findings from utilizing ABFT with transgender and gender diverse (TGD) youth presenting in LGBTQ+ Community Settings. Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) youth have been overwhelming absent from suicide research; yet, they are at even greater risk for suicidal behavior than sexual minority youth (Grossman & D’Augelli, 2007; Peterson et al., 2016). TGD youth often receive the bulk of their care in LGBTQ+ community centers and/or gender-affirming medical settings, where some may be exploring physical and social transition. In a exact study aimed to implement ABFT into LGBTQ+ centers, a small trial of TGD youth (N=8) received ABFT in community settings, including locations where they were receiving gender-affirming services. This presentation will describe the foundational principles of providing ABFT TGD youth in LGBTQ+ community settings and discuss how the delivery of ABFT was modified to be sensitive to the needs of TGD youth and their caregivers in these settings. ABFT delivery modifications will be illustrated through use of video and case examples.

Program Objectives:

  • Describe the preliminary empirical evidence supporting the utility of ABFT for treating TGD youth in LGBTQ+ community settings.
  • Discuss sensitive intervention techniques for joining with TGD youth and their caregivers in the context of ABFT delivered in LGBTQ+ community settings.
  • Describe at least three ABFT delivery modifications for TGD youth presenting in LGBTQ+ community settings.

Webinar 4:
Let's talk. With your parents?!
ABFT for Young Adults
Date: Wed, November 17, 2021
Time: 7:30pm-9pm (GMT+1); 1:30pm-3pm (Eastern Standard Time)
Speaker: Ilse Devacht & Laura Deckers

Young adulthood, comprising the age range of 18-25, is a challenging developmental stage in the transition to adulthood. Engaging young adults into relational repair work with their parents can be difficult given laws about confidentiality, shifts in the role of parents for young adults, and caregiver fatigue when the young adult has suffered from mental health issues for a long time.

In the first part of this webinar, treatment experts, Ilse Devacht & Laura Deckers, will share some insights on young adult development and parenting for this age group. We will discuss issues to consider when engaging young adults and their parents in ABFT and share our clinical experiences in implementing ABFT with young adult in more than a hundred families. We will also share data on young adult acceptance of ABFT.

Our ABFT therapist community is growing and we want to hear your experiences as well. Have you come across young adults for whom you think ABFT could help? Are you thinking of trying ABFT with young adults or perhaps have already tried?

In the second half of this webinar, a panel of ABFT therapists working with young adults will lead an open conversation with the webinar attendees about experiences working with young adults and ABFT. We look forward to sharing and discussing our exciting work with emerging adults and cherish this opportunity to think together as an ABFT community.

Program Objectives:

  • Identify the basics of the young adult developmental stage.
  • Describe what to consider when engaging young adults and their parents for ABFT.
  • Discuss the importance of attachment and relationship repair in the young adult age.

Webinar 5:
ABFT with Adolescents in Residential and Inpatient Treatment
Date: Thurs, March 17, 2022
Time: 2:30pm-4pm (Eastern Daylight Time); 7:30pm-9pm (GMT+1)
Speakers: Meredith Dellorco & Jasmijn Creten

Residential treatment centers in the US and inpatient treatment facilities abroad provide a comprehensive treatment approach for adolescents whose health and safety are at risk in their homes and communities. These adolescents are struggling with a range of mental health diagnoses, potential substance abuse and family conflict. Relational repair work between these adolescents and their caregivers is essential to their success post discharge. We have observed that repairing the adolescent's attachment to their caregivers and shifting their environment at home significantly reduces the risk of relapse post discharge from residential treatment.

In the first part of this webinar, the treatment experts, Meredith Dellorco & Jasmijn Creten, will share some insights on implementing ABFT in the residential/inpatient setting. We will discuss issues to consider when utilizing ABFT as the treatment approach in residential/inpatient settings where Clients are provided treatment for at least 30 days. This will include specific challenges and barriers that you may experience while utilizing ABFT in these settings and proactive ways to approach these challenges. In addition, we will share our own clinical experiences utilizing ABFT effectively while adolescents are in residential or inpatient treatment.

In the second half of this webinar, a panel of ABFT Therapists working with adolescents in residential or inpatient treatment worldwide will lead an open conversation with the webinar attendees about experiences implementing ABFT in this context. We look forward to discussing our exciting work utilizing ABFT with adolescents in this unique setting and using this as an opportunity to grow together as an ABFT community!

Program Objectives:

  • Describe how to implement the five tasks of ABFT with adolescents and their families in a residential or inpatient treatment center.
  • Discuss the unique challenges and creative adaptions of ABFT in residential and inpatient treatment settings.
  • Discuss the importance of attachment and relationship repair between caregivers and adolescents prior to them discharging from residential or inpatient care.

Webinar 6:
ABFT with Binge Spectrum Eating Disorders
Date: Tues, June 21, 2022
Time: 1pm-2:30pm (Eastern Daylight Time); 7pm-8:30pm (GMT+2)
Speaker: Stephanie Manasse, PhD

Outcomes from treatment for adolescent binge-spectrum eating disorders is suboptimal, and few resources have been dedicated to novel treatment development. One reason for lack of suboptimal outcomes of standard treatments (cognitive behavioral therapy, family-based therapy) is the lack of focus of these treatments on family functioning (e.g., family conflict and cohesion). Poor family functioning may 1) lead to the child to binge eat to cope with negative affect 2) interfere with the family’s ability to help the child make changes to disordered eating.

Attachment-Based Family Therapy holds high promise for improving family functioning and enhancing outcomes for adolescent bulimia nervosa and binge eating. This presentation will focus on (1) application of the ABFT model to binge-type eating disorders; (2) integrating evidence-based behavioral techniques for eating disorders with ABFT; and (3) describe how to apply the 5 tasks of ABFT to eating disorders. Case examples will be discussed.

Program Objectives:

  • Discuss how to apply the ABFT model to bulimia and binge eating disorder treatment
  • Discuss the methods for integrating behavioral treatment methods for eating disorders with ABFT.
  • Describe how to implement the 5 tasks of ABFT in the treatment of binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa.

Webinar 7:
Exploring Clinical Implications with Racial Trauma: Utilizing Cultural Humility, Self of Therapist, and Attachment-Based Family Therapy Through an Intersectionality Lens
Date: Wed, November 2, 2022
Time: 2pm-3:30pm (Eastern Standard Time); 7pm-8:30pm (GMT+1)
Speaker: Dumayi Gutierrez, PhD, Alba Niño, PhD & Syreeta Mason, PhD

Vast literature has highlighted the impact of racial trauma (such as racial discrimination, prejudice, and racially motivated violence) on mental health and wellbeing. Experiences of racial trauma have exacerbated adverse mental health outcomes such as post-traumatic stress symptoms, depression, anxiety, and suicidality. Evidence has shown success with therapies such as Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Attachment Based Family Therapy (ABFT) to ameliorate these symptoms. However, having an evidence-based model is only part of what is necessary to provide competent services to address the consequence or racial trauma. Exploring the impact of cultural humility, intersectionality, and self of the therapist factors with racial trauma is significant in cross-cultural clinical work. ABFT takes these issues into consideration in implementation of the therapy.

This presentation will discuss, 1) cultural humility and therapist role working with racial trauma, 2) integration of intersectionality framework and self of the therapist factors work with racial trauma, and 3) how ABFT utilizes cultural humility, intersectionality and self of the therapist factors with racial trauma in implementation of the therapy.

Program Objectives:

  • Discuss awareness of therapist positionality and cultural humility working with racial trauma.
  • Describe person of the therapist factors and intersectionality frameworks as related to working clinically with racial trauma.
  • Describe ABFT utilizes cultural humility and helps families experiencing racial trauma.

Killexams : How To Supercharge Your Keyword Research With Powerful subject Clustering

It’s common for marketers to target individual keywords when creating and optimizing content. Still, subject clusters are an even more powerful way to do keyword research.

With subject clustering, you can get results from the individual terms you target plus build a robust collection of relevant, associated keywords to drive more traffic to your website.

On January 25, I moderated a webinar with Dave Snyder, CEO and Founder at CopyPress, and Sabrina Hipps, VP of Partner Development. They demonstrated how to build a better keyword universe for your marketing efforts.

Here’s a summary of the webinar. To access the entire presentation, complete the form.

The Problem With Search-Focused Content

Search-focused content production is still primarily focused on “traditional keyword research,” or “linear keyword research,” which includes:

  • Bad data.
  • Limited scope.
  • A focus on a single keyword rather than intent.
  • Waste and redundancies in your content strategy.
  • Inaccurate ROI modeling and forecasting.
  • A significant amount of labor to scale correctly.
  • Increased possibility of poor data accuracy from third-party tools.

As you can see, traditional or linear keyword research typically focuses on singular keywords. It doesn’t focus on things holistically, and it doesn’t focus on user intent.

How subject Clustering Solves Search-Focused Issues

Taking a clustered approach towards related words could lead to something worth the expense of adding to your content.

Topic clustering:

  • Minimizes waste and gives clear ideas for grouping keywords into content pieces.
  • Gives a better forecast modeling that considers all the potential traffic each piece of content can generate.
  • Decreases the cost of keyword research significantly from a labor perspective.
  • Dilutes the possible effects of poor third-party volume accuracy.

2 Ways To Discover & Use Keyword Clusters

There are advanced machine learning programs out there that can speed up your workflow, as well as manual methods you can try.

Low-Tech, Manual Approach To subject Clustering

This approach will be somewhat labor intensive, but if you’re doing 10 or 20 blog posts a month, it’s an effortless way to cluster your concepts and get better forecasting.

Automated, High-Tech Approach To subject Clustering

Avoid the scaling issues of SEO and subject clustering by using machine learning.

The model we use in our on-demand webinar uses a learning model similar to what Netflix uses to help people find new movies and shows comparable to what they’ve previously watched.

  • Keyword data is collected based on the user’s seed terms and competitors. Then, the top SERP results for every keyword are gathered.
  • Top SERP results are run through models to determine how similar Google believes these data sets/terms are.
  • A secondary machine learning process is then used to bucket-related terms based on a scale that the user controls.

Killexams : An Easy 4-Step Guide To Improving SEO With Powerful subject Clusters

This post was sponsored by iQuanti. The opinions expressed in this article are the sponsor’s own.

What transforms a website from just a catalog of blog posts to a highly-organized hub of authoritative content?

How can you make sure your website becomes the top-visited resource for your industry?

Today, we’re going to travel down the content rabbit hole, and peer through the SEO looking glass, if you will.

You’ll discover how to easily merge content creation and SEO to help your website successfully rank at the top of search engine results pages (SERPs) using subject clusters.

Your goal: Create content that is able to answer your target audience’s questions by providing everything they need to know about their search queries.

The classic Alice in Wonderland series posed a quasi-metaphorical question to its protagonist: “Why is a raven like a writing desk?”

The question posited has nothing to do with the plot, leaves nothing to inform the characters’ growth or intentions, and may very well be construed as pure nonsense, a symptom of fantasy.

At the end of the story, Alice asks The Hatter, “Why is a raven like a writing desk?”

Though no answer was provided – and many answers have been theorized since – readers not only embrace this fantastical reality but champion it as part of the inherent logic of the narrative.

We’ve come to Wonderland to believe in the absurd possibilities of this reality, however nonsensical they may appear.

When it comes to your SEO strategy, you won’t be delving into fictional worlds or constructing outlandish characters and situations. You will, however, be in command of your narrative and its inherent logic.

You will need to:

  • Understand what your audience is looking for or trying to understand, lest you lose out on active users’ time on your page – a critical metric in search engine algorithms.
  • Know how your content is interconnected, how to prioritize it, and how to measure its impact.
  • Remember why it’s essential to keep your customer following the narrative down the content rabbit hole.

Step 1: Understand & Track Search Intent

Your audience’s search history and webpage behavior can speak volumes about their search intent and needs, even if it’s impossible to actually know what’s going on in a person’s mind.

SEO’s analytical aspects can uncover search intent based on keyword queries.

If you pair SEO analytics with subject-matter experts (SMEs), you can also supercharge your strategy by plotting topical interests and predicting a person’s position within your marketing funnel.

How To Discover Search Intent To Build Successful subject Clusters

You and your SMEs can easily develop one or more themed keyword landscapes, or “topic clusters”, by simply researching the root of a regular person’s keyword queries:

  1. Define query intent across your customer journey. Are your customers more likely to use search terms that signal awareness, consideration, comparison, or purchase intent in different parts of your sales and marketing funnel?
  2. Audit your existing keyword footprint, your competitive footprint, and your pay-per-click (PPC) performance.
  3. Explore and document new keyword opportunities that logically arise from your audit.
  4. Compile a master keyword list.

Your master keyword list will help you and your team clearly understand how your points of entry can be better positioned or supported on a user’s journey through your sales funnel.

Step 2: Create A Master Keyword List To Uncover Keyword Gaps & Cluster Foundations

You’ll want to walk away from step one with a master keyword list that will help you discover the content gaps that can be used to bridge your past content efforts with your present or future ones.

This helps you quickly see if your target audience’s search intent matches your website’s page intent.

Why A Master Keyword List Works

Master keyword lists work because they help make sure you’re covering every need of your target audience.

Once you’ve completed your master keyword list, look at how complete and logical your list of targeted keywords truly is.

Ask yourself if a reader finds your website after a query:

  • Will they need to take a step back to figure out how believable or valid the information you’re presenting them is?
  • Will the provided backlinks on that page assume that this user knows all they need to know, while attempting to redirect them to a product page without informing them of how you perform better than your competitors?

Either of these paths can quickly become disjointed without a logical flow of information.

That’s where the last high-level takeaway from your master keyword list can be beneficial: spinning a web of core, supporting, and related themes to ensnare and enthrall your user.

This is what creates the foundation of subject clusters.

Step 3: Create Content & subject Clusters

As you’ve seen, search intent needs to translate to page intent.

So, careful consideration during the keyword selection phase is key for content creation because of the many themes and subthemes that your brand, products, and services may cover.

These subthemes are the pillars of your topic cluster strategy. Implementing content clusters is an effective means of covering full syllabus in organized, digestible bites.

How To Create Content Clusters

Once your audience stumbles upon your landing page, the content must be compelling enough to draw their attention further.

Engage perceptions with stats and diagrams, provide visuals and lists, condense information, and challenge inquisitive minds to learn more on the next page.

Here’s how:

  1. Select your highest priority acquisition – conversion – pages and exhaust the themes and subthemes relating to it by building relevant awareness and consideration articles around it.
  2. Identify and connect the journey to different syllabus and subthemes with backlinks. For example, let’s say you’re building a product page for personal loans. You will naturally need to mention loan rates and credit scores to substantiate your offering.
  3. Create spinoff content. For example, can this spin off into article pages for “What’s a Good Credit Score?” and “How to Qualify for Affordable Loan Rates”? You could even compile information about the loan rates you offer for each credit score tier, compare your loan rates to your competitors, provide tips for improving your credit score, and so many more themes within themes.
  4. Enhance your content with videos, infographics, or sound bites.

As readers spin through your website, they become familiar with your brand, style, and voice, and might even develop some level of trust from their visit – if you’ve provided the information they’re looking for.

Step 4: Review Content Marketing Metrics & Analytics

Tracking where your readers explore your site more thoroughly will only further the plot – keeping in mind general consumer demand and some KPIs.

Whether it’s the value added by a narrative or a more consistent website flow, pages can be identified for their:

  • Conversion rate (CVR).
  • Page views.
  • Impressions.
  • Time on page.
  • And many other relevancy qualifiers concerning their intent.

After identifying successes, you can mimic these pages, which then can be integrated into your audience’s journey.

If metrics stagnate for some pages, they might need a refresh. Exploring different keyword landscapes and bridging cluster gaps can help Improve your site’s authority and user experience (UX) overall.

In the worst-case scenario – after you’ve decided it’s no longer relevant to your site visitors or from a keyword volume standpoint – you can decommission and 301 redirect any content that no longer performs in a way that fulfills your brand’s purposes.

Ensuring your site structure ranks well compared to competitors or industry aggregators can be challenging without sophisticated technological support – and there’s only so much that can be done unless you want to overhaul your website.

However, catching and nesting a customer to a purchase decision should involve an intuitive flow that won’t require the customer to encounter navigational mishaps, such as having to back out of pages.

Create A subject Cluster-Driven World Of Your Own

At the beginning of her journey, freshly lost and before the conversation about a raven and a writing desk, Alice asks the Cheshire Cat, “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”

The Cat replies, “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”

Though we’ve all been Alice before – on a website, in a crowd, within a metaphor – you should be fostering the journey with the same absurd seriousness the Cheshire Cat proposes.

In the story, Alice must find herself before knowing what she wants to do.

Your customers may stumble upon you with questions, curiosities, and intent – are you positioning your content in a relatable way?

iQuanti uses the combination of their proprietary tech and trained UX strategists to:

  • Identify and close gap deficiencies.
  • Track algorithmic score changes.
  • Improve site performance from a page level upwards.

If you believe you could use some help identifying content gaps or want to help drive the needle forward for your business, iQuanti’s SEO services could be just what you need.
