An Exploration of Self Help Groups and their role in supporting adult sufferers recover from an Eating Disorder, delivered by Sue Dixon.
Sue Dixon is Head of Teacher Education within the Department of Educational Studies at Goldsmiths (University of London). She is also a BACP accredited psychodynamic and UKCP registered psychotherapeutic counsellor in private practice.
As part of the BEAT Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2018, Sue will be sharing the findings from a qualitative study, which emerged out of her longstanding voluntary work facilitating a Self Help Support Group (formerly part of the BEAT Self Help Network) for adults who suffer from an Eating Disorder. The study explored the personal experiences of four former members who attended the group, and the value that they attached to the group in supporting their journeys towards recovery. Sue strongly believes that such groups can play an important role in supporting sufferers at a time when there are increased numbers of young people and adults presenting with an Eating Disorder in the UK.
Sue is currently pursuing this area in more detail at the University of Hertfordshire where she is a part time doctoral student on the PhD in Psychology programme.
This event is running alongside several related talks which are all being held in support of Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2018. In putting on this series of events, we hope to open up the conversation about a widely misunderstood issue, to break down common stereotypes and address the stigma around eating disorders. We also want to provide key information and practical tools with which to approach this issue, and to create a safe, supportive environment in which anyone can access the right advice and support.
Attendance is free but open to donations - please register your attendance on the hyperlink below. All funds raised will go directly to Beat to support the fantastic work they do to end suffering caused by eating disorders.
