Collaborative Care: The New Maudsley Model
The aim of this article is to describe the rationale and practice of the New Maudsley collaborative care intervention for families of people with eating disorders. The intervention teaches carers the underpinning theory with practical examples on how to optimize their care giving, communication, and coping skills. This includes moderating high expressed emotion and reducing the tendency to accommodate and/or enable illness behaviors. Transcripts are used to give examples of this approach in action. The emerging evidence base indicates that this approach improves both carer and patient well-being and also is associated with a more efficient use of resources.
