Book your place now!
Binge eating is the most common disordered eating behaviour / defined eating disorder condition in the UK and Ireland.
It is estimated that over 17 million individuals suffer with binge eating disorder worldwide however only 5 to 15% of all people seek out support. The number of treated cases in clinical situations is particularly low in the UK and especially Ireland.
This is often due to individuals not feeling like they require or deserve the support, which can be influenced by their view of self as well as the influence of their environment (including friends, family and colleagues).
In this webinar series we want to present an overview of binge eating; What is binge eating, why we shouldn't trivialize the term "binge", why we binge, what can trigger a binge and the steps / techniques we can take / employ to overcome binge eating.
