One of NEDC’s main objectives is to help build a skilled and competent national workforce that can provide safe and effective care and treatment for people experiencing an eating disorder, across diagnostic presentations and treatment settings. We are working towards this in several ways and also want to share innovations from other eating disorder organisations which provide opportunities to learn and grow.
NEDC are excited to launch their newest online training Eating Disorder Core Skills: eLearning for Mental Health Professionals. The evidence-based, nationally recognised, and freely accessible training will equip mental health professionals with the knowledge and skills to identify when a person is experiencing an eating disorder, complete a comprehensive eating disorder assessment, refer to appropriate services in the stepped system of care, and understand the components of eating disorder treatment and recovery.
The training is accredited, endorsed, or approved by the Australian Psychological Society (APS), Australian Counselling Association (ACA), Australian Association of Psychologists Inc (AAPi), Australian College of Mental Health Nurses (ACMHN), and Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), and meets requirements for the ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential for an Introduction to Eating Disorders for Health Professionals training.
