Eating Disorder Awareness
Member: £10 (£8 in February 2024 for Eating Disorder Awareness Week)
This CPD module has been developed in partnership with Beat, the UK’s leading Eating Disorder Charity.
As a Coach or Welfare Officer you might have gymnasts who come into the gym with an already diagnosed eating disorder, or a gymnast may develop one whilst they are a member. For these reasons we want to give you information and support, to not only manage what can be a challenging situation, but to ensure gymnasts are appropriately supported and safe when participating in gymnastics.
At British Gymnastics we want to create positive experiences for all and ensure that the gymnasts are at the heart of our sport. Providing education on this topic aims to support you to be more capable in your role.
Here’s some feedback we’ve already gained:
“Everyone should do it if they work with gymnasts.”
“It really does get the point across and makes you realise what others might be going through, and their daily struggles.”
“Excellent module. Very well thought out, very clear, very thought-provoking.”
“This is a really positive step forwards as a piece of education for our community.”
