  • Watching a friend or a loved one struggle with Anorexia nervosa can make a person feel

  • extremely helpless. And it can really be extremely hard to know how best to approach that friend

  • or loved one and be able to do anything or say anything that's going to be experienced

  • as constructive. And there's no guaranteed blueprint as to how to do this effectively.

  • One thing I can say is that, in general, probably standing by and just allowing an eating disorder

  • to go unacknowledged and just basically sort of pretending it's not there, probably in

  • the long term is not a good strategy. That really sort of can reinforce a person's denial

  • about seriousness of an illness that they're coping with.

  • But struggling to find the right words and the right language can be difficult. Anger

  • can be a common piece of watching somebody with an eating disorder deteriorate and figuring

  • out how to leave an angry out of beginning to bring up the eating the problem can be

  • a challenge and something that I would sort of encourage. That the most you can take an

  • approach that is somewhat gentle that doesn't put a person too much on the defensive is

  • an important piece of style that is likely to be more successful. On the other hand,

  • especially if you're a parent and you're really taking a very central role in trying to guide

  • your child or adolescent into treatment, being firm about the need for treatment is equally

  • important to not being too angry or putting a child on the defensive.

  • Certainly as a parent or a close loved one to someone, there's also many things to think

  • about in terms of how you relate to a child or adolescent, or loved one that has an eating

  • problem. So that, for example, if you yourself struggle with shape and weight concerns or

  • have a relationship with your child, or adolescent, or loved in which shape and weight critiques

  • a part of the dialogue, you really want to think about that and not have those type of

  • critiques be part of the ongoing conversation. They really can just serve to deepen and entrench

  • the eating concern that the person that you're watching struggling with the eating disorder

  • has.

  • Ultimately, getting some help from a mental health professional, like a family therapist,

  • can be extremely helpful in trying to communicate more directly with a person about an eating

  • problem, figuring out neutral language to use to help move a person towards treatment

  • and through treatment in a constructive way instead of in a destructive way
