Maudsley model training course for those caring for someone with eating distress
The aim of the new Maudsley model is to help carers feel more confident and empowered in their role, to reduce their anxiety, and improve communication lines in the family, ultimately helping them best support their loved one on their path towards recovery.
It aims to do this by:
- Strengthening carers’ beliefs in their abilities to make change possible
- Giving carers the opportunity to express concerns about the illness
- Discussing the basic principles of behaviour change
- Teaching communication skills (ability to express and process emotions)
- Promoting respect, satisfaction and a unified approach within the family
- Maximising carers skills (warmth with limits and boundaries)
- Highlighting factors which may be aggravating the problem
- Teaching the skills of problem-solving.
