Our Nourishing Carers program welcomes parents and carers who are supporting loved ones with an eating disorder. The group aims to provide expert information on a range of relevant topics, including eating disorders and the brain, managing difficult emotions, and other practical strategies to empower carers to assist recovery.
The group also offers families an opportunity to connect with those facing similar challenges, providing a heartening space to share experiences and offer encouragement to each other. Nourishing Carers is facilitated by Nourish. Nurture. Thrive. Clinical Psychologists Ainsley Hudgson and Claire Finkelstein.
