continued “Parent and family education and support are key components to effective treatment for eating disorders,” she said. “Understanding that eating disorders are not about food is a concept that is crucial for recovery. This program, developed by professionals who specialize in eating disorders, is built on four core beliefs: that all families have strengths; that parents should be given positive recognition for being experts on their children; that a variety of family forms can promote the development of both healthy children and healthy adults; and that cultural differences are valid and valuable. We hope this presentation will help our effort to engage parents and loved ones in creating a healing environment for those recovering from eating disorders.”
