Acting as an introduction to eating disorders, the 1st module of the Eating Disorder Awareness Diploma Course provides students with complete insight into what eating disorders are.
The focus is on the concept of body shaming, body image, and how a negative body image can lead to eating disorders. It covers the myths and facts surrounding the topic and provide you the truth behind these myths. The module explains how an eating disorder is not just a “women’s disease” and can affect both men and women alike. Also, a brief list of the reasons why eating disorders occur is given, along with statistics of the extent of eating disorders in the UK.
The 2nd module covers the causes of eating disorders listed below in detail, giving students a greater understanding of the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ that an eating disorder may present itself. The module also stresses that these factors rarely occur in isolation, with sufferers usually being afflicted with 2 of more of these contributors:
Each of modules 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 of the Eating Disorder Awareness Diploma Course cover, in depth, each type of eating disorder, including what it is and its signs and symptoms. The study of each of these eating disorders will endow students with a clear and explicit understanding of the differences between each type:
With students understanding why and how eating disorders present themselves and what each type is, the course moves onto module 8, which discusses treatment. Here methods and tips on how to counter the illnesses are listed and guidelines are provided on how to deal with a professional, in case you decide to seek help from a general practitioner.
Eating disorders manifest subtly and are not easy to spot, most of the time the person suffering is unable to identify an eating disorder themselves. Module 9 of the Eating Disorder Awareness Diploma Course serves as a guideline as to what actions to take in case you know a person who may be afflicted. It provides information on how to spot a person who is suffering and how you can help them.
As with mental health problems, eating disorders are massively misunderstood by society, which in turns creates myths and misconceptions that make it harder to tackle the problem, and the seriousness of having the condition and trying to deal with it can be seriously undermined. Module 10 combats these misconceptions by first stating each falsehood and then dispelling it.
To solidify understanding of the different types of eating disorders, how they affect the lives of sufferers and how people can recover, the 11th module of the Eating Disorder Awareness Diploma Course provides 4 case studies to look though, detailing the experiences of those who have lived with and recovered from an eating disorder.
Aimed at coaches, therapists, or individuals who want to train in modalities for assisting individuals to overcome eating disorders, module 11 provides a comprehensive guide of techniques and how to use those techniques to facilitate change.
The course concludes with an extensive summary, which covers the main points given in all of the proceeding modules.
