Families/carer’s support can prove crucial in helping a loved one recover from an eating disorder. At EDCC we believe family/couple therapy to be an essential part of the treatment plan towards a person’s recovery

•    A diagnosis of eating disorders often brings feelings of trauma, pain and despair to individuals and their families.
•    Developing an eating disorder is not the fault of the person, and it is not the fault of the family.
•    Education about the eating disorder is an important step families/partners/carer’s, can take in supporting the person with the eating disorder.
•    A families/partners/carers understanding that recovery from an eating disorder takes patience, time, compassion and commitment.
•    A willingness to listen, learn and develop better ways of understanding one another is helpful to recovery.
