  • What are Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating?

  • What are the risk factors, warning signs and symptoms of Eating Disorders?

  • What are the misconceptions about Eating Disorders? 

  • What to do if we think someone is struggling with their relationship with food? 

  • What are the treatment options for Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating? 

  • What is a healthy relationship with food, and how do we promote a healthy relationship with food and our body in our school, workplace or home? 

  • What is a healthy diet for someone wanting to improve their relationship with food and their body?

We also add on specific populations modules; young people, fitness industry, workplace nutrition, working from home, sports teams and more. 

Our online course is self paced and can be made available for all staff members; we provide a certificate of completion at the end which can be used as CPD.
