IRELAND 2019 New Maudsley (Motivational Interviewing) workshops for parents and carers. 

Day 1

The first day of the course explores the difficulties in being a carer, what eating disorders are, causes of ED, self-care and caring styles.

Day 2

The second day is much more interactive, with parents/carers learning enhanced communication skills, the psychology of change, how to deal with conflict, how to promote recovery and the day involves a lot of skills practice and exercises.

Hi, i wondered if a moderator could please post this on the events thread. Hope Virgo, an author and mental health campaigner is coming to University of Bedfordshire on Friday 4th October to talk about her personal journey with anorexia, recovery challenges, her book and the #dumpthescales campaign. We will also have our local eating disorders service talking about treatments that are available locally. An event suitable for sufferers, carers, professionals, students or anyone wanting to learn more. We have tried to keep ticket price to a minimun and we can offer a discounted rate to all University of Bedfordshire students but we particularly would encourage Psychology, Mental Health Nursing and Social Work students to attend. Tickets can be purchased at https://ceda-talk-ed.eventbrite.co.uk . For more information please contact cedaluton@gmail.com . Thank you.
