Training and Education

Our education courses are designed to equip supporters with the tools to ensure that early intervention and quality support is accessible for all. We offer courses for professionals, caregivers, organizations, and for individuals who are experiencing an eating disorder themselves. Our courses are hosted on our online learning platform.

For Professionals

Training for professionals focused on skill development to help build confidence in their ability to detect, diagnose, and treat people with eating disorders. Many professionals in their formal education, including physicians and dietitians, receive very little ED-specific training. Our courses are designed to help fill this gap and ensure that people in all professional settings are equipped with the tools they need to support patients and clients with eating disorders.

For Caregivers and community

Research has shown that with EDs, patient readiness and the nature of patient and family members’ relationships with care providers is strongly associated with recovery outcomes. Families, friends, educators, peers, coaches, and community supporters play a huge role in recognizing an eating disorder, overcoming illness related barriers, reducing stigmatizing  attitudes, and encouraging engagement with treatment. These networks are known to have a big impact on the decision to seek treatment and provide support and motivation for recovery. 


Our programs are focused on increasing confidence and providing tools to caregivers and communities to help them navigate their role as supporters.
