Raising Resilience is a series of online workshops for carers that take place live over Zoom. Along with others caring for someone with an eating disorder, you’ll learn new skills from an experienced eating disorder clinician.
Throughout the workshop, you’ll receive a pack of information on supporting your loved one from Beat, Professor Janet Treasure’s Skills-based Learning for Caring for a Loved One with an Eating Disorder: The New Maudsley Method, and ED Says U Said by June Alexander and Cate Sangster.
There are five workshops in total, which run weekly for two and a half hours.
The first four workshops will cover:
We’ll follow up with an additional workshop that will give you a chance to meet again with your group, discuss any progress and give you chance to ask any questions you might have. We will also offer a brief introduction to Coping with Christmas. We suggest that these sessions are attended by those who have already attended Raising Resilience.

The workshop runs in full ten times throughout the year. It runs 18:45-21:15 on week days, and twice on Saturdays from 9:30-12:00 or 14:30-17:00.
We allow a maximum of 16 people to join each workshop.
It is open to parents, partners, siblings, and others caring for a loved one with an eating disorder that has lasted fewer than five years.
The full workshop is five sessions long. We encourage you to attend the first four, although if you need to miss a session, there may be an opportunity for you to catch up when the workshop runs again. The final session has the same content as our Coping with Christmas workshop and is optional.
We ask that you have a good internet connection and a working camera.
Our other workshop for carers, Developing Dolphins, covers some similar themes, and if you have already done that workshop then Raising Resilience offers a great opportunity for you to practice and develop the skills you learned. However, it’s not necessary to have completed Developing Dolphins before joining Raising Resilience.
These sessions may be recorded for training and monitoring purposes and will not be shared externally. If you have any questions please contact the training team firstname.lastname@example.org.
