- You will also begin the process of transforming your own relationship with food.
What will happen on this masterclass
Eating disorders are potentially serious but treatable mental health problems. Both you and your clients need specific, practical, evidence-based skills to work with people distressed with their eating and body size.
Part of this course is taught from the front. You might also like to bring us some of your own clients. In this way, we can bring to life the teaching points so that this short introduction course is as practical for you as possible. As part of the training, there will be a live demonstration showing the assessment process and how this will help you build a compassionate, effective care plan for your clients.
Who may attend
All professionals with an interest in eating, weight control and general health.
