Our training sessions for professionals are suitable for staff or volunteers who might come into contact with people who are experiencing eating disorders.

Understanding Eating Disorders sessions will provide staff with a basic understanding of eating disorders and some tips and advice about ways to support people who are experiencing an eating disorder, as well as information about sign posting to other support.

We also tailor sessions to meet the needs of your organisation and we can come and talk at staff meetings if preferred.

Staff Sessions

This training is for members of the children's workforce including teaching and support staff at schools and colleges, health professionals and community professionals.


Understanding Eating Disorders

This session delves into the different types of eating disorders, triggers and routes to recovery. It will guide the staff on how to spot the signs and provide information on the available support services.

For more information please contact our Education and Training Manager, Christie Rossiter at christier@syeda.org.uk for all training queries for Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and North Lincolnshire.

One of our students disclosed that she is suffering from an eating disorder and this is now being dealt with. I would love to work with SYEDA again.
