Introduction to eating disorders and obesity – two days masterclass
This academic and experiential course is a marvellous introduction for all health professionals who wish to deepen their understanding of eating disorders/obesity and work ethically and competently within this field. The course is based on what I have learned from Deanne Jade, founder of the National Centre for Eating Disorders. You will broaden your skills base and learn how to work safely with these clients.
What you will learn?
You will learn how to recognise an eating disorder, learn how to support recovery and add to your toolbox as a counsellor, coach or teacher. You will also begin the process of transforming your own relationship with food.
What will happen on this training?
Part of this course is taught from the front and you might wish to bring along some material from your own clients. In this way, I can bring to life the teaching points that are delivered in this course so that is as practical for you as possible. There will also be a hours 'live' assessment which will show you how to engage immediately with this client group.
Who may attend?
All professionals with an interest in eating, weight control and general health.
Trainers: Bernie Wright and Lisa Smith nutritionist and snr lecturer (Brighton University) who will give a short module on essential nutrition for recovery.
