Skills sharing for people with eating disorders

Skills sharing for people with eating disorders

Families Empowered And Supporting Treatment for Eating Disorders (F.E.A.S.T)

About this event

Presented by Professor Janet Treasure. 

The basic principle that underpins skills sharing for supporters is that parents and other carers can provide ongoing support to bridge gaps within treatment and services.

This support can moderate some of the maintaining factors that arise from the secondary impacts of prolonged poor nutrition which leads to suboptimal decisions and embedded habits that develop with a protracted illness. In addition, Anorexia Nervosa is visible and frightening (to others) and valued (by the individual who may be blind to negative consequences of the illness). This produces tension in parents and carers, who can become anxious, drawn to protect, and frustrated by rejection of what seems a simple solution i.e., to eat. These automatic reactions may fragment the family, whereas deeper understanding can foster a united approach.

Note: This UK webinar takes place on the morning of Thursday, 14 July, at 4am AEST.
