Eating Disorder Interventions
Eating Disorders are Life Threatening
p>Eating disorders can potentially be the most difficult and also one of the most life threatening issues. If you suspect there is an eating disorder problem it is important to act quickly, but not without a plan. Eating disorder interventions begin with an extensive assessment of the presenting problems and issues. Establishing a course of treatment and creating a plan of action to support the treatment are the initial goals. Very few families and friends who attempt to intervene, without a professional, have a complete action plan that addresses all possible outcomes. Recovery from an eating disorder is a long, involved process. It is not a one-time event.
Professional Eating Disorder Interventions Require Some Planning
The key to successful eating disorder interventions is planning, preparation and professional experience. Organizing a team of family members and friends with a common goal and technique, raises the clients “bottom” and establishes healthy boundaries for families and loved ones to live by. These strategies allow for success that often has been impossible in the past. Eating disorders are a disease, much like drug or alcohol addiction, and it affects the individual as well as the entire family.
