In 2014, we developed PiLaR as a support programme for those supporting a person with an eating disorder, including family members such as parents, siblings, partners and friends. Family members have their own support needs and need a structure and space to feel heard.
Supporting family and parents has always been a core aspect of our work. As part of this, we offer parents and families a free four week (delivered once a week, over 2 hours) structured programme, incorporating both psycho-education and support, as well as practical advice and skills to help you support your family member towards recovery.
The PiLaR programme is delivered by Bodywhys, in support of the HSE’s National Clinical Programme for Eating Disorders.
the PiLaR programme is only for carers, parents, siblings, family members, friends. It is not
a programme for clinicians. We offer information/training/CPD for clinicians separately.
If you are a professional, a clinician, an allied health professional who would like to enquire about CPD training in eating disorders please email Harriet Parsons, our Training and Development Manager on email@example.com
