About this training
Knowledge about nutritional aspects of food intake, eating behaviour and weight regulation is essential if someone with an eating disorder is to recover.
This course informs and empowers health professionals who encounter eating disorders in their work, who wish to add nutritional guidance to their treatment for disordered eating. You will learn why nutritional interventions are so important and how to integrate simple, effective nutritional approaches alongside other aspects of treatment.
This course is largely taught from the front, however with ample opportunity to work in pairs and small group format. At the end of the course, there is a case study provided to teach you how to apply the taught material to a real-life scenario.
