The New Maudsley Approach is designed to help carers develop self-reflective skills in order to role model confidence, compassion and courage to take risks, how to experiment with changing caring behaviour so carers can be more helpful to their loved one suffering from an eating disorder.
Caring for a Loved One with an Eating Disorder
The New Maudsley Skills-Based Training Manual provides a framework for carer skills workshops which can be used by anyone working with these conditions.
Based on the successful New Maudsley Model, which equips carers with the knowledge and skills needed to support those with an eating disorder, the book consists of two sections which will help facilitators to deliver skills workshops to carers. The first section provides the theoretical background, while the second uses exercises to bring the New Maudsley Model to life. The skills workshops provide a much-needed lifeline, giving carers an opportunity to meet in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment, and to learn to recognise that changes in their own responses can be highly beneficial.
With session-by-session guidelines and handouts for participants, Caring for a Loved One with an Eating Disorder: The New Maudsley Skills-Based Training Manual will be of aid to anyone working with someone coping with these conditions.
Carers who are unable to attend skills workshops will also benefit from using this manual as a self help guide on how to come alongside their loved one with an eating disorder, and walk slowly with them on their recovery journey
All the worksheets can be downloaded from our website.
