Professor Janet Treasure will lead the 11th Newbridge House Masterclass on July 17, with a day focused on collaborative care in eating disorders.

Internationally recognised and widely published, Professor Treasure has authored more than 600 scientific articles and in 2012, was awarded an OBE for her work.

Her Masterclass programme will begin by examining social factors as part of the formulation of eating disorders, then considering maintaining social factors (the impact eating disorders have on personal relationships and whether they can inadvertently sustain the disorder, or become a resource for recovery).

Professor Treasure, who is known for her work with carers, will consider how best to address the social and personal impact of eating disorders, including education, strategies to reduce unhelpful emotionally driven behaviours and how social support can facilitate change and recovery.

The afternoon sessions will focus on carer self-management approaches, which have been widely applied and tested, for people who form the support network, including parents, partners and siblings. The essence is to promote a collaborative approach to providing social support and steps to recovery, with teaching through personal example (patients and carers who have lived experience of eating disorders).

Professor Hubert Lacey, director of research at Newbridge House who developed the original concept of the Masterclass series, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Professor Janet Treasure will be joining our programme.

“The principle of the Masterclass has always been to deliver a really high quality educative experience and as such, Professor Treasure is a sought-after speaker whose work is internationally admired and respected.

“We have had a high number of applications for the Masterclass and as always, we will offer places to ensure there is a broad, multi-disciplinary range of professionals, designations and eating disorders services represented.”
