Dr Rachel Bryant-Waugh

Newbridge House’s tenth Masterclass will focus on feeding and intergenerational disorders, led by a leading Great Ormond Street Hospital clinical psychologist.

Dr Rachel Bryant-Waugh’s Masterclass will address two main topics: Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and challenges to child feeding behaviours in the context of maternal eating disorders. The full day educational event will take place on Tuesday, November 28th at Fairlawns Hotel, Aldridge, West Midlands.

This will be the tenth Newbridge House Masterclass in a series which has featured speakers from Australia, Canada, Norway, Sweden and the UK. The principle is offering free, high quality education with internationally renowned experts. Participants are eating disorders professionals working in many different types of service across the country, facilitating many opportunities for shared learning and reflection.

Dr Bryant-Waugh is a clinical psychologist based at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) in London, where she is Joint Head of the Feeding and Eating Disorders Service and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Child Health, University College London.

Rachel has acted as National Clinical Advisor for the Children and Young People’s Evidence Based Treatment Pathway for Eating Disorders and has served on DSM-5 and ICD-11 Work Groups. She has won national and international awards for her work in the field of feeding and eating disorders in recognition of her contribution to this field. She has published widely and trains and lectures in many countries.

Her Masterclass will cover: What is ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) and where did it come from? ARFID and evidence based practice: where do we stand at present? Mothers with eating disorders and early feeding and concluding with strategies to reduce risk of intergenerational transmission of eating difficulties.

Professionals working in eating disorders services are welcome to apply for a place, but Masterclasses are heavily over-subscribed and places are allocated to allow for a wide range of services to attend.
