LONDON AGAIN MAY 13 and JUNE 23
Originally posted by Melstev

There is a conference about eating disorders, for carers and professionals in June in London, at the Institute of Psychiatry.  I am not good at making hyperlinks but if you search online you will find the programme for the event.

Professor Janet Treasure and Gill Todd, both outstanding and well known clinicians in the field of eating disorders in the UK, have organised the event.  The programme looks exciting and will present up to date knowledge and research and will be well worth attending for anyone who can make it.

The cost is £85 and for all those parents in the UK are struggling - these conferences can provide a time for reflection and can be quite energising, as well as providing an opportunity to meet other parents and carers from FEAST>

To flag up the date in good time.  If any of the mods can make a hyperlink to the programme I would be most grateful!

Here is one for those that live in Sydney, New South Wales or places close to Sydney.

A clincal event that is getting carers high on its agenda & program.

How does it feel when we are not on the same page as our loved one?
What is going on when despite our best intentions, we feel frustrated, impatient, or disconnected?
What gets in the way of being collaborative and compassionate when the going gets tough?
The purpose of this workshop is to help carers identify barriers to maintaining a collaborative stance with their loved one and to explore ways that mindfulness and compassion can help in overcoming these barriers.
This workshop will be useful for carers of youth or adults with eating disorders. It will include a review of research on collaboration and its barriers. There will be opportunity to reflect upon experiences and learn strategies that assist in maintaining a collaborative stance in situations where it is most needed.
