Supporting someone with an eating disorder? Visit POD our support hub for carers

Our training courses

With training from Beat, the UK’s eating disorder charity, you’ll learn how to pick up on early signs of eating disorders, how to approach someone you’re concerned about, and what you can do to help them into the treatment they need.

Our skills-based workshops are led by clinicians with first-hand experience of working with people with eating disorders. The courses are designed to suit the needs of many different people who may come across someone with an eating disorder in their personal or professional life.

During the coronavirus pandemic, many of our courses moved from an in-person to an online format. Going forward, we’ll continue to review how we run our training to ensure that we’re meeting attendees’ needs.
