Countdown to Reservations End Date
Young people are the most affected by self-harm and eating disorders. There could be many reasons why young people are affected, from a change in the environment, change of friends, new pressures or demands of work. These reasons could impact a young person's attitude towards food and eating, which could then develop into a bigger problem.
This one day course will provide delegates with a clear overview of the essential introductory knowledge, skills and strategies to provide up-to-date support within education settings for students with eating disorders and those who self-harm.
