Eating Disorders and Other Eating Issues: an introduction 

Presenter: Lena Cromartie

This half-day in-person training for talk therapists provides an introduction to understanding and responding to eating disorders and other eating issues. The information is based on the latest research as well as clinical experience, and some experiential exercises are included. Prior experience with a range of eating issues, or attendance at the online training ‘Eating Issues: The Fundamentals’ is a pre-requisite.

Key learning points include:
  • Knowing the main types of eating issues and eating disorders
  • Understanding causes: the role of genes and the environment
  • Assessing for risk and readiness to change
  • Developing a therapeutic alliance/working alliance with your client
  • Working with your client: first steps
  • Multidisciplinary work and referring to other services
  • ANZAED eating disorder treatment principles & clinical practice standards 

For 10 years, Lena Cromartie (PG Dip Counselling, Dip Life Coaching, Dip Practitioner Skills for Eating Disorders) ran a busy private practice dedicated to clients with eating issues. She is a full member of NZAC, an accredited registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and the author of Bingeing, Dieting and You: 30 things every woman needs to know.
