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.
Who can attend?
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
Next programme: Thursday, March 9th, 2023 from 7pm – 9pm
