Crows Nest Centre

PACFA is excited to announce that we are partnering with the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) to put on free professional development on eating disorders for PACFA Members.

One million Australians have an eating disorder. All health professionals have a role to play in early identification and response to eating disorders, to support the best possible outcomes for their clients. In addition, Counsellors and Psychotherapists can have key roles in supporting carers and in helping a person to work towards recovery and reintegration into school, work and community life.

This introductory workshop will give attendees the key information that they need to be able to identify and respond to eating disorders within the Counsellor’s role.

Through a blend of information provision, small group discussion, case studies and other activities, attendees will find out more about:
•    The signs and symptoms of different types of eating disorders;
•    Tackling common misconceptions;
•    Screening and assessment;
•    Treatment and the building blocks of recovery;
•    The Counsellor’s roles in the continuum of care.

These sessions are being run free of charge for PACFA members in Sydney and Melbourne and are limited to 40 participants per session
