PEACE - Pathway for Eating disorders and Autism developed from Clinical Experience : South London and Maudsley FT
Many individuals with eating disorders demonstrate a pattern of autistic-like traits, including difficulties with socio-emotional processing and an inflexible and detail-focused cognitive processing style. We have now spent over a decade investigating socio-emotional and cognitive styles in people with eating disorders and translating research findings into creating better, more sensitive clinical pathway for our patients their families and clinicians working with this group. Our changes in the strategies and PEACE pathway development made positive impact on all stakeholders with impressive cost savings. Our online conference and feedback makes us confident to scale up this innovative clinical pathway across UK/internationally.
