Event description

Description

We are an independent charity, originally established in 1996 by a group of families who were affected by eating disorders and who were concerned that there was nowhere to go for support.

We support a wide range of people from many different backgrounds with a range of different eating disorders. We help anybody who feels that their relationship with food or body image dominates their lives, and we help the people who care about them.

Training Content

The training will include the following topics: What are eating disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and OSFED), address misconceptions, causes and triggers, sign and symptoms, advice on how to support an individual, assisting recovery and referral pathways.

The training is interactive with opportunities for group work and a Q&A.

Please note, we also design bespoke training session to meet the needs of the professionals. For example, training for sexual health nurses and GPs will include more medical content.
