Raising Awareness Around Eating Disorders

“Eating disorders aren’t just about food and eating. They are about difficult problems and painful feelings, which you may be finding hard to express, face or resolve. Focusing on food is a way of disguising these problems, even from yourself.” (Mind)

This course will increase your awareness of what it is like to live with an eating disorder, and outline strategies that enable people to cope with long-term eating disorders.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • Understand what is meant by the term Eating Disorder
  • Be familiar with some of the signs and symptoms of the main eating disorders
  • Consider the possible causes of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating
  • Consider how particular eating disorders make the individual experiencing them feel
  • Think about what helps and what doesn’t help people living with an eating disorder
  • Consider the range of different interventions and services available
  • Appreciate people’s stories and journeys of recovery.
