Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders is running an empowering families workshop in October & November 2014.
This is based on the “The New Maudsley Method” by Professor Janet Treasure, Graiian Smith & Anna Crane.
Skills-based Learning for Caring for a Loved One with an Eating Disorder equips carers with the skills and knowledge needed to support and encourage those suffering from an eating disorder, and to help them to break free from the traps that prevent recovery.
Through a coordinated approach, this book offers information alongside detailed techniques and strategies, which aim to improve professionals’ and home carers’ ability to build continuity and consistency of support for their loved ones. The authors use evidence-based research and personal experience, as well as practical support skills, to advise the reader on a number of difficult areas in caring for someone with an eating disorder. These include:
- working towards positive change through good communications skills
- developing problem solving skills
- building resilience
- managing difficult behaviour.
