A pre-conference workshop for carers

By author June Alexander

The diary is an excellent tool to help you take care of yourself

Caring for yourself is a vital part of helping a child, patient or partner recover from an eating disorder. In fact, science tells us that self-care is imperative for supporting carers in their efforts to cope with caregiving and help with their loved one’s recovery (Ref: Patel, Shafer, Brown, Bulik, & Zucker, 2014).

Who is this workshop suitable for?

 Parents and family members of a loved one with an eating disorder

 Clinicians (especially students) who want to better understand diary writing as therapy

What will the workshop cover?

 How keeping a diary can help enrich your role as a carer and your life as an individual

 Brief history of the diary, its role in today’s high-tech world

 How diary-writing can help you keep a healthy perspective on daily challenges

 How the diary can reduce the vulnerability of feeling blame and of feeling time-poor

 Ways the diary can help challenge the secrecy that goes with the illness

 Using the diary to connect with and help the person with the eating disorder

Registration rates: $50 Early Bird up to 31st March (with AHWED conference registration); $60 Standard (with AHWED conference registration); $75 Standard without conference registration (available from 1 April) (morning tea included).
