Eating Disorders

About the Eating Disorders Certificate

Eating disorders are on the rise and, unfortunately they are often misunderstood. There are a number of complex reasons why people develop conditions such as anorexia and bulimia nervosa and other types of eating disorder. If we want to tackle these issues, we must first try to understand how they come about. We must also evaluate the treatment available for those affected.

This distance learning course begins by taking a look back at the history of eating disorders. The material questions: ‘what is an eating disorder?’ and explores what it has to do with control. Students will review case studies and evaluate the treatments and outcomes. Altogether the course should span across approximately 110 hours.
