A 3-day course (2-day version also available).
Tragically, some eating disorders have a very high mortality rate. And yet there are usually good ways of treating them.
Eating Disorders pose a tremendous threat to an individual's physical and mental well-being and are usually a source of great concern to friends, family and professionals alike. This course looks at the full range of eating disorder presentations, and recognises that many individuals present in ways that don't perfectly fit any of the diagnostic categories. The course addresses the complex causes of an individual's eating disorder alongside validated and evidence-based cognitive behavioural understanding and techniques for successful intervention.
We continuously monitor the quality of our training by obtaining feedback on the two key scales of relevance and presentation from every course delegate. Below are the average ratings for the last ten runnings of this course.
Average Presentation rating: 95%
Average Relevance rating: 92%
