At the moment we only have 10 people signed up to attend this event, which will be led by Eva Musby on the theme of refeeding with compassionate communication.
At £40 per person or £60 per couple, it is great value as it includes lunch.

The conference is organised by SEDIG, Scotland's national eating disorders charity, and the Chair of SEDIG, Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Royal Edinburgh CAMHS, Dr Fiona Duffy will also be present.

This gives any of our parents/carers the opportunity to speak personally with either Eva or Fiona over lunch, to ask individual questions or make your views known about what you think needs to change with treatment.
And with so few people - usually we have around 50 or 60 - the workshop should provide time for everyone's questions to be answered.  

Please let anyone who may be interested know about this event.  You can sign up through the SEDIG website or email SEDIG.  I think there is a problem using Paypal at the moment, which has still not been resolved so emailing may be better.

Thank you.

Believe you can and you're halfway there.
