Title: The Missing Piece: Family Involvement in the Comprehensive Treatment of Eating Disorders

 

Course Description:

Eating disorders affect the entire family, but families and caregivers are often overlooked in the treatment process. When their loved ones leave treatment, family members often feel unprepared for how to support them. This presentation will provide a framework for clinicians in working with families of clients with eating disorders from an Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) perspective. An overview of EFFT will be provided, along with concrete ways to identify barriers and caregiver traps that keep family members stuck in supporting their loved one. Experiential interventions will be delivered in which clinicians will practice skills learned and identify their own biases and blocks towards working with family members and/or supportive others. The goal of the presentation is to equip and empower clinicians to work with families of individuals with eating disorders with competence, confidence, and compassion.


Learning Objectives:

1. Attendees will describe the foundation of Emotion Focused Family Therapy as a framework for providing support to family members and supportive others of loved ones with eating disorders.

2. Attendees will identify barriers and caregiver traps in providing support to loved ones with eating disorders.

3. Attendees will demonstrate skills in validation and providing emotional and practical support to loved ones with eating disorders.
