In this webinar, "Building Resilient Support Systems for Families Affected by Eating Disorders," we will examine how families, often the untapped superpower in eating disorder recovery, can be supported and educated to, in turn, support their loved ones.

Families, particularly when the loved one is no longer an adolescent, are not typically included as part of the treatment team. Often, professionals, while willing, struggle to include them.

Throughout this webinar, we will not only explore the ways in which families can be supported and empowered to aid their loved ones but also provide insights into recent research clarifying the profound impact of eating disorders on both the individual and their familial support network. Drawing from our own experiences, we will share best practices and innovative strategies aimed at constructing resilient support systems for families, thus nurturing the recovery journey comprehensively. Join us as we navigate this crucial aspect of eating disorder treatment and support.
