 Understanding eating disorders

The growing number of people suffering with eating disorders has led to a need for more information and a greater understanding of this illness and its different manifestations. Making sense of the different forms of eating disorders and how these progressively control one's life is a crucial element of any effective treatment. In this lecture Philippe will offer some useful pointers and insights into the world of the sufferer and how to make a separation between the person and their eating disorder. It is his intention to do this by exploring the following:

. Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Overeating and binge eating
. The Recognisable Symptoms of these Eating Disorders
. Where they can be seen to come from
. Possible Confusion over Diagnosis
. Models of Treatment and their efficacy
