Families and friends provide important and necessary support to someone in recovery from an eating disorder. Caring for someone with an eating disorder is a huge job and can be challenging and stressful. It is important to ensure that those caring for someone with an eating disorder take the time to care for themselves and their own wellbeing.


Caring for Carers is a series of seven workshops aimed at: improving carer’s wellbeing, developing coping strategies and increasing problem solving skills. The workshops are designed for carers - parents, partners, siblings or friends.
Key elements in the workshops include:


• Learning about caring styles
• Developing skills to help support a loved one
• Understanding what may be happening in your loved one’s mind
• Increasing awareness of the effects of an eating disorder on behaviour
• Exploring communication styles and developing problem solving skills
• Highlighting, identifying and promoting opportunities for self-care
• Learning, practising and applying new skills to support and encourage recovery
• Connecting with others going through a similar experience
