Course content

Learn about eating disorders in general, gain knowledge of the most common eating disorders, their symptoms and how they are treated, and learn how to support loved ones with eating disorders. You will also learn about how modern society, diet culture and the media can affect us, and what role different individuals and institutions can play in creating a safe environment that reduces the risk of people developing eating disorders.

The course begins with a look at mental health and the basics of eating disorders before moving on to explore the risks and factors that contribute to their development.

From there we will examine three types of common eating disorder in more detail; Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder. For each we will learn about the diagnosis criteria, specific signs and symptoms, and typical treatments.

The Eating Disorder Awareness Diploma Course outlines how to intervene and offer support if you are concerned about a loved one, and the general recovery process, framework, and self-help advice available. We’ll look at the treatment options, specialists, and the roles and responsibilities of individuals and institutions in aiding recovery. The course also examines the body positivity movement, including its history, benefits, criticisms, and how to take on its ethos.

Lastly, we’ll consider what can be done to prevent eating disorders from occurring in children and young people by encouraging healthy self-esteem, a positive body image and a good relationship with food.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Understand eating disorders
  • Be aware of who is most at risk and why

  • Learn what’s involved in recovering from an eating disorder
  • Understand the support available and how to support others
