First Steps is an eating disorder charity based in Derbyshire.
Supporting someone with an eating disorder can be extremely tough, especially as the support and understanding carers give can be crucial in helping their loved one.
From June 2019 First Steps will be running free Skills for Carers workshops
These workshops help carers develop skills for tackling eating disorder difficulties, focusing on warmth, empathy and self-reflection. The workshops will help carers learn how to reduce resistance to change by directing people in a gentle, non-confrontational way towards finding their own solutions. The workshops will cover different caring styles including the new Maudsley Method.
All First Steps workshops are delivered by their team of expert trainers, specialising in eating disorder management. First Steps is also able to provide support materials in various formats.
The workshops will be held at the First Steps base in Derby as well as in the north east of the county (venue TBC).
