Description of Presentation:
If you’ve ever know someone with an eating disorder than you will understand the frustration of trying to help them. Eating disorders are aggressive and chances are you can barely recognize your loved one anymore. That said, what may appear as a reasonable solution on your part, is often met with intense resistance and even anger. Should you back away and let them work it out themselves or keep at it with greater vengeance? Both of these approaches will end badly.
Communication 101: Essential Skills to Support Caregivers will walk you through your role as the caregiver and teach some crucial tools to rebuild healthy relationships, and demonstrate your love in an assertive manner, while addressing your own personal self-care throughout the process.
Based on the content of the workshop participants will be able to:
1. Describe the role of the caregiver.
2. Explain how ED thoughts disrupt relationships.
3. Discuss communication barriers that impair trust.
