School staff play a vital role in supporting young people at risk of or experiencing eating disorders. However, school staff can often feel apprehensive about how to best support students who may be experiencing difficulties.
EDV’s Education team provide professional development workshops to equip people working in education (primary, secondary and tertiary) with the skills needed to identify and support students who may be at risk of an eating disorder.
EDV offer two workshops for school staff. Bespoke workshops can also be developed depending on the need.
