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

Raising Resilience

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.

How much time will I need to commit?

There are five workshops in total, which run weekly for two and a half hours.

FAQs

How frequently does Raising Resilience run?

The workshop runs regularly throughout the year based on funding.

How many people can join each Raising Resilience workshop?

We allow a maximum of 17 people to join each workshop.

Who is the workshop for?

It is open to parents, partners, siblings, and others caring for a loved one over the age of 12 with an eating disorder that has lasted fewer than five years.

Do I have to attend every session?

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 will act as a review session with some introductions to our Coping with Christmas workshop depending on the time of year.

What do I need to join Raising Resilience?

We ask that you have a good internet connection and a working camera.

What if I've already attended Developing Dolphins? How is Raising Resilience different?

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.
