Abstract

This paper primarily represents the views of young people with eating disorders who would like family, friends and professionals to understand what they find helpful and unhelpful but also presents alternative perspectives. A framework is proposed to aid such communication with examples to illustrate how this might be implemented and how this links to a cognitive behavioural approach. The benefits and challenges are described. Finally, suggestions are made for constructive communication regarding what is helpful and unhelpful and applicability to other contexts.
