Event description
Professional development to help people working with young people to understand disordered eating and referrals to best assist their clients

About this Event

Everyday we are inundated with complex, constant messaging about our bodies, about how they “should” or “shouldn't” look and this has an effect on our physical and mental health. In this workshop you will learn to understand these topics to better support the young people in your life who may be dealing with disordered eating:

  • Understanding eating disorders
  • Understanding disordered eating
  • Impact of dieting culture
  • Influences on body esteem
  • Early intervention with a focus on disordered eating, binge eating and bulimia nervosa
  • Understanding referral pathways to best assist young people

This workshop explores the risk and protective factors underpinning the development disordered eating and eating disorders. It is designed to give educators and professionals working with young people aged 8 to 18 information and tools to support body esteem education and create environments which support body confidence and health relationships with food and exercise.

This workshop is appropriate for all school support staff, nurses/health workers and others who work with youth.

The Body Esteem training will go until 1 pm at which point we will break for a 30 minute lunch followed by a short presentation from the manager of the Geraldton headspace on referral pathways and the local supports that exist for people experiencing eating disorders or disordered eating.
