Centre for Clinical Interventions based in Australia has two information packages about eating disorders which are very useful, both for sufferers and carers. The link is: Overcoming Disordered Eating – Part A: Disordered eating – how it develops, how it is maintained, and strategies to start to change the problem behaviours associated with disordered eating.
Overcoming Disordered Eating – Part B: Provides some strategies and techniques to change the thinking patterns associated with disordered eating. Both parts are organised into modules designed to be worked through in sequence. Each module contains information, worksheets, and suggested exercises or activities.
