Problems with food can begin when it is used to cope with those times when you are bored, anxious, angry, lonely, ashamed or sad. Food becomes a problem when it it used to help you cope with painful situations or feelings, or to relieve stress, perhaps without you even realising it (B-EAT). One in five people diagnosed with anorexia will die from it. This course provides basic knowledge for anyone working with children or young people.
What the course will cover:
- Types of eating disorders and prevalence
- Self esteem and body image
- Screening and working with risk
- NICE guidance
- Preventive approaches
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Describe different types of eating disorder
- Reflect on risk and casual factors
