Collaborative Care Skills Building Workshop (CCSW)

CCSW workshops are for people who provide support to a person with an Eating Disorder.

Caring for someone with an eating disorder can be very challenging for families and support people. It’s important that care givers are equipped with skills and knowledge to empower the caring journey.

CCSW workshops are designed for parents, partners, siblings or friends of someone with an eating disorder. They are aimed at improving carer’s well being, developing coping strategies and increasing problem solving skills.

The workshop is based on research conducted by Professor Janet Treasure and is proven to reduce carer burden and distress.
