Participants will gain a greater understanding of some of the behaviours and psychopathology when assessing and deciding whether to work with people with eating disorders, or if appropriate know when to refer on to specialist services. The day will cover NICE guidelines, the psychological and physical effects of starvation, warning signs, diagnosis, treatment and integrative ways of working.
