Eating Disorders & Meal Support

With the rising prevalence of eating disorders among young people, this course is designed to provide staff with both knowledge and practical skills that can be immediately applied post-training.

Its primary objective is to enhance professionals’ understanding of the underlying drivers of eating disorder behaviours and equip them with strategies to provide optimal support, ultimately minimising the need for hospital admissions.

Participants will learn techniques to assist individuals in remaining engaged in education, adopt a multidisciplinary approach to care, identify available support resources, and effectively communicate with young people about their struggles.
