Students | Eating Disorders Victoria

Eating Disorders Victoria (EDV) offers a range of focused presentations for students from Year 5 through to Year 12. The presentations run for one hour, are suitable for small through to large groups and are combination of lecture, discussion and interactive activities. They are designed for mixed gender audiences and can also be delivered to single sex groups.

Presentations use a strengths-based approach and encourage students to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they require to make healthy, safe and active choices that will enhance their own and others’ health and wellbeing. Content development is guided by The National Eating Disorders Collaboration: Eating Disorders in Schools: Prevention, Early Identification and Response 2016 and mapped against AusVELS curriculum for Health and Physical Education, Interpersonal Development and Personal Learning.

EDV will provide two trained education facilitators for each presentation and ask for a minimum of two teachers to also attend. Teachers will be provided with resources for follow up activities after the presentation. All presentations use PowerPoint and schools need to provide IT support of: laptop, projector and screen (EDV can provide these items if the school is unable to)

Areas covered include:

  • Building self-esteem
  • Developing positive body image
  • Identifying the health needs necessary to promote and maintain growth and development
