ARD Therapies Ltd. introduces ‘The HOME (Human Occupational Model for Eating Disorders) Program’, an interactive 6-week downloadable course. It provides a step by step process for clients to engage in tasks that examine their current unhealthy thoughts and behaviours in order to develop alternative positive thoughts. Changing thoughts leads to a change in feeling, leading to a change in behaviour. Our model utilises the concept that eating disorders are a complex form of habituated behaviours that have been learned.
These behaviours can be changed by the client if guided on how to alter the way they think. Clients can change very quickly if they are given practical ways to do so. ARD Therapies Ltd. HOME Program simplifies the process and empowers clients to change. The course also provides nutritional information specific to eating disorders. The Program can be completed independently, with a loved one or with one to one support from the course creators.

The HOME study course is a new interactive downloadable 6 module program aimed at supporting clients experiencing signs and symptoms of an eating disorder.
An alternative to traditional therapy, improving access to services
Traditional face to face therapy can be a daunting task for some individuals. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence UK (NICE, 2017) identifies “that people with an eating disorder may find it difficult or distressing to discuss it with healthcare professionals”. Online therapy can provide an easier way to engage in the difficult first step towards recovery.
The Human Occupational Model for Eating Disorders (HOME) program aims to empower clients and families to take back control of the healing process. It facilitates this through guiding clients step by step to their own path of recovery with the aid of interactive exercises that challenge them to address the underlying causes of their condition. Clients can complete the program individually, with a loved one or with our tailored online support.
