Family plays a powerful role in the treatment and recovery from eating disorders. While the treatment focus often centers around the emotions of the identified patient, members of the family also experience strong emotions that can either hinder or enhance the recovery of their loved one. 

This 2 CE training will offer strategies for professionals to engage the entire family as they learn to respond to their own emotions in ways that support long term recovery. Attendees will explore family members’ common responses to the discovery of their loved one’s eating disorder. The presentation will include strategies for clinicians to identify how the family can balance their own emotional needs in addition to serving as a recovery support to their loved one.
