learn to stop walking on eggshells
When up against a loved one’s eating disorder, men face baffling, stubborn & unfair dilemmas.
Instead of battling and blaming the eating disorder, you’ll learn to recognize & respond to it—and to the person you know and love.
Mental health professionals will learn evidence-based strategies to mobilize male loved ones
as resources & allies in treatment (and recovery).
Increase participation, engagement, and families working in unity--which improve client outcomes.
We help you respond to the impact of eating disorder on YOU
(and your loved one).
We help parents, stepparents, co-parents, and other family become powerful medicine for healing and recovery.
