Hi All,
I want to let you know about an exciting opportunity coming up.. Families Empowered and Supporting Treatment of Eating Disorders (F.E.A.S.T.) is holding a forum in Chicago, where the focus is on parents and caregivers having the opportunity to learn, connect, and also teach, through sharing their lived experiences with each other. It is also open to clinicians eager to improve their practice via greater understanding of the power of parent and caregiver education and empowerment at all levels of care and across lifespan. The most effective treatment exists when the clinical community, family, and patient work together, each understanding their roles and abilities and complementing each other; the stronger the legs on a 3-legged stool, the sturdier the recovery perched upon it will be.

The date for F.E.A.S.T. of Knowledge: Parents and Caregivers: Partners in Care is 22 April 2018 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; The chosen date and venue to capture both AED-ICED attendees and those families who can better access a less expensive, shorter event.

Please spread the word. on social media with the attached flyer and using hashtags #feastofknowledge and #feastofknowledge2018. If you can attend, please register here. Stay tuned for announcements on a lineup of engaging speakers and sessions.

I personally attended an carers conference in London last year with F.E.A.S.T. and it was amazing, don't miss out!!!
Please see the attached flyer !!

Son,DX with AN, (purging type) in 2015 ,had 4 months immediate inpatient,then FBT at home since. He is now in strong recovery,  and Living life to the full, like a "normal"[biggrin] teen. This is with thanks to ATDT. Hoping to get him into full recovery and remission one day at a time. Getting him to a much higher weight, and with a much higher calorie plan than his clinicians gave him as a target, was instrumental to getting him to the strong recovery that he is in now. Food is the medicine.
