Beat - Coping With Celebrations

We know that celebrations can be challenging. This course for carers is designed to help you support your loved one to feel more in control and less overwhelmed, so that family and friends are able to enjoy celebrations together.

Our Coping with Christmas programme comprises:

  • An e-learning module on POD (our online carer platform)
  • One 2.5 hour Zoom workshop facilitated by one of our trained eating disorder clinicians.

The short e-learning module will look at why the holidays can be a stressful time for someone with an eating disorder, explain strategies to plan for the day and how you can practice self-care around the festive period.

The workshop will be an opportunity for you to consolidate your learning from POD, explore coping strategies in more detail and hear from other families affected by eating disorders. There will also be an opportunity to speak to someone who has fully recovered from an eating disorder, or from an experienced carer.

We have 24 workshop dates between November 21st and December 16th available to choose from - sign-up to POD to view them and book now.

We are currently in the process of creating support programmes for celebrations other than Christmas. Please check back in the new year if this is something you would be interested in.

Spaces for the our workshops are limited but our e-learning module is available for all POD users.
