Topic outline

  • Insight into Eating Disorders

    Eating disorders are misunderstood and still seen as a taboo subject.  This module lifts the lid on the topic, dispels the myths, reveals the truths about why eating disorders happen, and provides you with the confidence and tools to engage with the subject in a sensitive and caring way.

    This module has been developed by Cherry Dakin from tastelife. The content is designed so that the first three sessions are for anyone who wants to learn more about Eating Disorders. The fourth session is tailored toward Youth Workers for our FLEX learners. 

    By the end of this course, you will:

    • Understand what eating disorders are really about
    • Identify what eating disorder behaviour might look like
    • Know what to do to help individuals and families affected by eating disorders
