Diploma Course: Introduction to Eating Disorders


This 10-week diploma will introduce and examine key themes in the spectrum of eating disorders.

Testimonial: Seamus Newe – Diploma in Introduction to Eating Disorders

I found the Introduction to Eating Disorders course to be a highly informative and very well presented programme. The course provided me with a strong insight to a subject area which can be highly complex. The course tutor (Harriet Parsons) was highly knowledgeable, and presented the course material in a very accessible format. The course material and reference documents provided were of a very high standard and have proved to be a valuable reference point for me in my work.
