Parents worldwide, if your child has an eating disorder, the new resource on CareEDScotland is a great way to learn fast how to help your child (age up to 25).
http://www.caredscotland.co.uk/

I especially like the video clips where there's 2 parents talking about what they've learned and found most useful. I think these videos are pure gold!

There's a lot in there, nicely bite-sized, clear, and follows best evidence.
It was created with Scottish government funding by clinicians in Edinburgh.
But nearly everything is relevant wherever you are in the world.

Most is FBT but they also had in mind people up to age 25, which in this country is treated in ways I can't get my heard round,  so there's a bit of the individual therapy/motivation/cycles of change/New Maudsley stuff. I could nit-pick (and I have) but there's so much great support in there I want people to benefit from it.

And they recommend FEAST, which shows they can be trusted, right?

(Moderators, would this be a resource to add to FEAST resources?)

Thanks Eva,
that is really great and I wish I had that earlier. And it is a great sign that they made it up for 25 so they see the problem with young adults and ED.
Thanks again for sharing,

I agree with you about the age thing, Tina72. Maybe it shows an intention to get rid of the 18-year age cutoff. But in Scotland I know of only Ayrshire that treats all ages in the same service. Everywhere else, I believe, the treatment changes at 18-and-over, and the benefits of a family approach get lost.
In England my impression is there are just a few places where the service has been changed to an "all age" service.

Hi Eva,

I am impressed by this resource as well - I never realised that Ayrshire had got rid of the 18-year cut off.  That's fantastic, I hope more services in health authorities in Scotland follow suit!

Hi Melstev, at the last SEDIG day in Glasgow I was chatting with therapists from the ED service in Ayrshire and they said it was all ages. When I enthused about how that means, hopefully that FBT principles can therefore be used with a young adult, I didn't get the impression that they're at the top of the curve with that, but maybe they were just tired after a long morning of talks!

Aagh!! Started looking at this last night and thought I'd come back to it today.  It keeps asking me to answer the initial log-in survey and then won't let me enter the forum once I've completed it!

Yes it wouldn't let me enter either after I filled out the survey. After I filled it out and pressed enter website it brought me back to the survey. Not the best user experience!

That's useful feedback. I know they've been trying to improve access, especially for visitors outside the UK, and I'm not sure if your attempts were before or after that. I've emailed them anyway so they can check out.

I managed to get into the website today without any problems, and without having to sumit all my details again, which was good.  

I've now had a chance to have a good root around the website and agree with others that I would have found this resource incredibly useful in the early stages of re-feeding and FBT: it's accessible, in bite-size chunks, tells you what you need to know and points you in the direction or other useful resources.  I remember not being able to read the Lock and Le Grange book quickly enough in the first few days to get a grip on what we were facing.  And it was only when I discovered you book, Eva, that I really found out what I should actually be doing to support meal times - so relieved you get a name check!  Several, in fact!
