This workshop is aimed at anyone working with children around food and weight issues. It provides an introduction to effective strategies for helping children learn to eat in a way that nourishes them and where they learn body confidence. Recommended by eating disorder organisations, this approach supports children and their carers in promoting well-being and a healthy relationship with food, for life.
By the end of the course participants will:
- Be aware of evidence supporting a relational approach to nutrition in children.
- Learn skills to help children learn to listen to body signals of hunger, appetite and fullness.
- Know how to support adults whose children are ‘fussy eaters’.
- Know how to support children to develop a positive sense of their own and other’s body image.
- Understand the role of growth charts.
- Be familiar with application of the concept of ‘division of responsbility’.
- Know how to address and prevent troubled eating in children.
- Know how to integrate the prevention of eating disorders in children’s healthy weight campaigns.
Cost: £125 standard place; £75 student rate – limited spaces.
