Abstract (Summary)

For someone with an eating disorder, the significant and positive role of the family in the recovery process cannot be underestimated. There is a need for an environment in which both patients and loved ones can learn and unite together during this difficult process of recovery. A critical problem in the field of eating disorder research is a lack of nutrition-focused curriculum structured specifically for loved ones who want to support a patient with an eating disorder. The purpose of this project is, therefore, to create an Eating Disorder Recovery curriculum in which patients and their support network learn alongside of one another. Specifically, this curriculum will follow a four-week plan focused on the therapeutic and nutrition components of recovery with goals to both educate and unite patients and their support network during the process of recovery.
