Being a parent is one of the most stressful jobs in the world. But not as stressful or complicated as parenting someone with an eating disorder. I treat people with eating disorders and it is by far the most complicated and challenging condition I treat. When it’s your own child, and you are living with the consequences of the eating disorder, it takes the stress to a whole new level. It requires a completely different type of parenting. In this video I am in conversation with Jenny Langley whose son had anorexia at the age of 12.

She is the author of books on the subject and a lead facilitator of the New Maudsley Carers Skills Model. She not only has personal experience on the subject but is hugely knowledgeable, highly respected and runs a carer’s support group. This is a must-see video for anyone who even suspects their child has an eating disorder, or for friends or family of carer’s. It is an eye-opener.”
