Males, long thought to make up just 1 in 10 eating disorder cases, require help in ever greater numbers. Latest research indicates males represent up to a third of those identified with anorexia and bulimia, half with binge eating, and the majority with muscle dysmorphia. To identify and treat males, it takes a complete re-think of what you assume eating disorders look like and how to assist those who are struggling with the deadliest mental illness in the DSM.



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
