Free to all: Eating difficulties and body image

Eating difficulties and body image

(free course, see below for further information)
03/03/2020 Professional Development Centre, 4 – 6 pm

Schools are likely to have a great many pupils who diet, purge or use diet pills, who misuse exercise, and who suffer from body dissatisfaction. Schools are also under pressure to take action on obesity (www.anorexiafamily.com).

In this training event we will explore eating difficulties and body image, and what schools can do to help. Recent research clearly indicates that negative body image is common among school-aged children, and in the 2017 Norfolk Well-being survey less than half of pupils indicated that they were happy with their weight. There is a strong relationship between poor body image, disordered eating and weight problems, and this will be further explored in this training session, as well as thinking about the actions schools can take to help.

This workshop is jointly delivered with colleagues from the CAMHS eating disorder service.
