Description of Presentation:

More research is needed regarding nutrition interventions in the treatment of eating disorders. This lack of data can make treating clients using evidence-based practice complicated. In this presentation, we will review the available research and discuss how therapists and dietitians can work in tandem to help clients decrease their fear and anxiety regarding food and move toward recovery.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to describe how to initiate a nutrition intervention, how to implement the intervention, assist with mood regulation, and process the intervention with the client.
  2. Participants will be able to explain how allowing imperfection and relaxing control can help clients decrease anxiety and resistance during an intervention.
  3. Participants will be able to describe why listening to and honoring somatic cues is important in the treatment of eating disorder clients.

Training for:

Staff of Hospitals, Medical Centers, Mental Health Clinics, General Medicine Physicians, Psychiatrists, APRN’s, Psychologists, Counselors, Dietitians, Nurses, Substance Abuse Counselors, Mental Health Technicians for all levels including introductory to advanced
