ACFEDOne of our members, Kyla Holley, will hold a workshop on Eating Disorders on March next year.

The Australian Centre for Eating Disorders will be having a 6-Day course that provides a solid foundation to enable you to successfully recognise and treat a range of eating disorders.

Unfortunately there are not enough Australian Eating Disorder Practitioners who are trained in this specialised area, so demand for your future skills will be high. This comprehensive eating disorders course is in line with the latest thinking from a range of psychological approaches.

You will learn practical and effective skills that will enable you to engage with clients and offer them constructive help to recover from their eating disorder. You may also contribute your own expertise as this course provides opportunities to share experience and make discoveries.

The Eating Disorder Essentials training course is suitable for counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists, addiction specialists, life coaches, doctors, psychiatrists, nutritionists, nurses and social workers at all levels of experience and qualification.

You will learn about…

  • How to engage and motivate people with eating disorders
  • How to assess each disorder in a way that is helpful to everyone
  • How to build a treatment plan and get to the heart of the problem
  • Prioritising treatment strategies for Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder
