Eating Disorders Education Program

The METROPOLITAN Center for Lifelong Learning offers an innovative Training Program exclusively for Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Dietitians/Nutritionists and generally for Health Scientists on the modern scourge, which comes to cover all scientific parameters in relation to Eating Disorders (ED), which include Anorexia nervosa, Bulimia nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder.

The Program is implemented with the support of the Interdisciplinary Staff of the ANASA Day Center, which has been operating for 10 years by the Non-Profit Company for the Support of People Suffering from Eating Disorders, ANASA. The Program provides its graduates with the International PEARSON Certification.

Despite the great progress that has been made in recent years concerning the treatment of various serious diseases, modern society seems to come into contact, with an ever-increasing frequency, with these complex and intractable eating disorders. Although anorexia and bulimia mainly concern young women and their age of onset is between 15-19 years, recently there has been an increase in cases in children and older adults on the one hand, and in males on the other.

The causes of eating disorders are mental, and related mainly to individual psychology and the elements of the person’s personality, intra-familial factors, stress, psycho-traumatic events, etc. Genetic, neurobiological, environmental and socio-cultural factors also contribute to the appearance of disorders.

One thing is certain: The more information and scientific training Health Scientists who deal with this sensitive field they have, the more effectively they will help their patients and contribute to the effective treatment of these serious mental disorders.
