Insights in Recovery: A consumer-informed guide for health practitioners working with people with eating disorders
Insight from more than 100 Australians who have a lived experience of an eating disorder was incorporated into the report, and the details of what helped them recover were analysed. Insights in Recovery explored what motivated them to engage in recovery, how they understand recovery in their lives and what sort of professional responses they found helpful.
Central to the guidelines is a 'help me to feel safe' approach. That is:
Help me – the whole person in the context of my family and friends, my life and dreams
To feel – help me to deal with my thoughts and feelings in a positive way
Safe – help me to feel understood, less afraid and more hopeful
