Anyone who works in a professional care role or supports people through all forms of grief, loss and difficult life situations e.g. Social Workers, Teachers, Counsellors, Doctors, EMT, Corrections, Mental Health, Hospice, Volunteers etc.


This professional training webinar aims to take a closer look at types, common misconceptions, and methods for treating Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating. What does research tell us? What is the impact?
