Hi everyone
I wanted to let you know there are now free spaces on the one-day course for parents and clinicians, which I'm leading next Friday (30 September) in Wakefield (UK).

The Trust, who are organising it, are now opening it to parents outside the area.

So any of you who would like to come, you need to book (numbers are limited). Contact Amanda Millership, tel 01977 465 874
It's 9:15 to 5pm, at Glasshoughton, WF10
I'm planning lots of practical stuff on mealtimes and on communication and skills for kind persistence.
Maybe see you there!
Eva Musby, mother, author, produces lots of resources for parents at https://anorexiafamily.com and on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/EvaMusby/playlists
Gosh, this sounds great!! I would have driven across a country for advice from Eva Musby when my d was ill.

Hope as many people as possible sign up.

Thanks for doing this!
D diagnosed with EDNOS May 2013 at age 15, refed at home Aug 2013, since then symptoms gradually lessened and we retaught her how to feed and care for herself, including individual therapy, family skills DBT class, SSRI medication and relapse-prevention strategies. Anxiety was pre-existing and I believe she was sporadically restricting since about age 9. She now eats and behaves like any normal older teen, and is enjoying school, friends, sports, music and thinking about the future.
