Delivery Methods


Interactive workshops to help you support your loved one’s recovery. It can be hard to know what to do and say when you’re supporting someone with an eating disorder. Through our free Developing Dolphins workshop series, we help you learn new skills and knowledge from experts. Developing Dolphins is based on the New Maudsley Method and its animal analogies. These Zoom workshops aim to help you be a “dolphin”, gently guiding your loved one towards recovery. We run five two-and-a-half-hour workshops over five weeks, open to parents, partners, siblings, and anyone else caring for a loved one aged 18 or over.
