ISR Technique Handbook
In the recovery from a restrictive eating disorder therapy is an incredibly important factor to aid the process. It can help the individual to deal with their concerns and with time, determination and commitment fully overcome their disorder. The ISR technique is based around three key phases: Identification, Separation and Release. With the belief that the person is always there and that in order to fully recover they must fight back against the disorder, re-engage with their core self and gain strength, empowerment and hope from this process. The technique looks on the eating disorder as a separate entity or part of the person and that recovery means gaining awareness of this, fighting for the individual and through this destroying the virus that is an eating disorder.
This handbook provides a guide to the ISR process with each of the phases covered in detail as well as ideas for activities, ways to help support family and friends and much more. The publication is ideally suitable for professionals working from a therapeutic perspective within the field of eating disorder recovery.
