Empowering parents and carers - Emotion focused family therapy workshop

                             1-2 November 2019 -  Caregiver workshop: 

          Emotion Focused Family Therapy in the treatment of eating disorders

Parents and caregivers DO NOT cause eating disorders. In fact – they are the best resource for recovery - they just need some support, some skills and some coaching. 

Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) is a innovative treatment model that supports parents and carers to have a significant role in their loved one’s recovery by developing skills in the following areas:

1) Recovery support: assisting their loved one – regardless of age – in the interruption                           of symptoms and maladaptive behaviours (e.g.restricting/bingeing).

2) Emotion support: supporting loved one’s to approach, process and manage stress,  emotions and emotional pain reducing the need for symptoms.

3) Relationship repair: healing possible wounds from the child or family’s past in order      to help loved ones to let go of the weight of old injuries.

4) Caregiver support: (including professionals): working through and resolving fears and   obstacles that may arise through this challenging and novel journey.
