Often people ask us what exactly is Carework?Careworkers are people who are fully recovered from ED and have undergone specialized training by MTC. Carework sessions allow the client to bring their learning from one-to-one sessions with their Practioners to everyday life. Carework first began in MTC in 1997 and has proven to be an essential factor in our multi-disciplinary model.The links below will give you further insight on the various benefits one receives from Carework sessions.
We are often lead to believe that Eating Disorder are developed in a sufferer’s teenage years, this latest research proves that sufferers are in fact getting younger and younger.

Doctors at the Westmead Children's Hospital in NSW have told the ABC that child admissions for eating disorders, particularly anorexia, have tripled in the past decade.Children as young as eight are being admitted, some of whose lives are at risk. Dr Sloane Madden says children's ideas about what constitutes a good body shape are cemented at a young age."By the age of 12 most children have their ideas about what's a desirable weight and shape," he said."So children at that age see being thin as being equated with successful, hardworking, and when you couple that with the message that overweight and obesity is bad and a focus on losing weight, that really is a potentially dangerous combination."
The head of the hospital's adolescent medicine department, Susan Towns, suspects the media is to blame.
Another myth we often hear about Eating Disorders is that sufferers are mainly female, this research proves this isn’t always the case.

People tend to notice when women binge on food — men, not so much. And that may explain why many people think that binge eating is just an women's eating disorder.
But men are almost as likely as women to lose control in the presence of food and to suffer ill health because of their bingeing, a new study shows.
After surveying 46,351 men and women about their relationships with food, researchers found that almost 8 percent of the men and 11 percent of the women had a tendency to binge, according to the study which was published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders.
