    Anyone caring for a loved one with an eating disorder will know about the challenges of having family meals in restaurants. In this video we see how emotions can quickly escalate and the ED voice ends up having the upper hand.

Identifying close others within your friends and family network who are compassionate, can listen non judgementally, and who don’t tell you what to do, can really help to give you some much needed respite. In the first vignette Alice’s friend doesn’t quite get this balance right. In the second she listens carefully, shows great compassion and uses motivational language to help Alice to start to see things more clearly and to visualise a brighter future ahead.
