Professor Janet Treasure: Maudsley, Adults with Eating Disorders, and Community
In this podcast Tabitha Farrar talks to Professor Janet Treasure about:
Professor Janet Treasure, OBE PhD FRCP FRCPsych has specialised in the treatment of eating disorders at the South London and Maudsley Hospital and had an academic career at King’s College, London for the majority of her career. The Unit continues to be one of the premier European academic centres for eating disorders. In their innovative approach to training and treatment they have adopted the newest technologies including iPODs, DVDs and web-based programmes as part of their interventions. Professor Treasure has spearheaded projects that introduce recovered patients and carers into the audit and development plans for clinical services and also in the delivery of training for professionals, carers and patients.
Professor Treasure was made a Professor of Psychiatry in 2000 and awarded an OBE for her work in eating disorders in 2013. Her research has led to greater understanding of, and better treatments for, anorexia and bulimia. Much of her research focusing on the development of new treatments has been carried out collaboratively with, and often inspired by patients and their families. As well as editing professional texts, Professor Treasure has written several self-help books for people with eating disorders (Schmidt & Treasure, 1993; Treasure, 1997). Guided self-help using books such as these are recommended in the NICE guidelines as a first stage of treatment.
