Course content

If you are already a practitioner working in a health or mental health role, then this is your opportunity to deepen your knowledge of supporting people with complex mental health issues that involve eating disorders. Look at current nutritional, physiological and psychological perspectives, and learn cognitive behavioural approaches to therapeutic treatment in this area.

By studying alongside fellow professionals from the fields of occupational therapy, counselling, psychology, nursing and dietetics, you will appreciate how a multi-professional team can work together to provide effective care. Our classes are taught by academics from across these disciplines and you are encouraged to critically reflect on your own practice, ensuring you have a solid understanding of the breadth of holistic treatment.

You will graduate with a professional qualification and an increased confidence in delivering best practice care for those living with an eating disorder.
