Psychological Interventions for People with Eating Disorders: A competence framework

Welcome to the competence framework for work with people with eating disorders. This site gives open access to the framework, which details the knowledge and skills that need to be brought together to deliver effective interventions for people with eating disorders.

The primary audience for this work will be healthworkers, trainers and supervisors, clinical managers and commissioners of services.

It is a good idea to read the background document, which explains how the competence framework was developed, and includes a guide to its content.

Accessing and downloading the competence framework and the curriculum

There are two ways of accessing the competences:

1. You can download them from the map of competences (which you can access by clicking the image of the map below).

The map sets out the structure of the framework and shows how the competences relate to each other. Placing the cursor over any of the boxes in the map takes you to the relevant competences.

You can download a pdf of the map here.
