History with Eating Disorders
Daughter has Anorexia Nervosa. Diagnosed at age 17, probably had it since much younger. While weight restored at age 19 using Family Based Treatment over 18-month period, relapsed soon after. Continual decline since. Now 24, refusing to engage in structured treatment program.
Why part of Eating Disorders Families Australia (EDFA)
Experienced the isolation and constant doubt before we discovered FEAST. Wife and I became much more able to provide effective support to daughter once FEAST was part of our lives. Want to help other families avoid the delays to recovery we experienced because of our own ignorance and the ignorance of others. By contributing my professional skills, I hope to assist EDFA in this way.
