Origins of Dysfunctional Eating Behavior


About the Presenter:

Jessica Setnick, MS, RD, CEDRD-S, is known worldwide as the author of The Eating Disorders Clinical Pocket Guide. Having worked in every level of eating disorder care and education for the last 23 years, Jessica has trained many thousands of professionals in Eating Disorders Boot Camp™ and hundreds of other presentations including multiple Center for Change Conferences. In 2012 Jessica founded IFEDD, the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians, through which she advocates for better access to care, an end to insurance discrimination, and to reverse decades of marginalization of underrepresented groups in research and treatment. Retired from patient care since 2013, Jessica now focuses on educating primary care professionals, phone and video consultations of eating disorder dietitians, and constantly cooking up new ideas to improve the field and make it more welcoming to the diverse voices we need to move forward. Jessica runs DietitianSpeakers.com, CDRNavigator.com, and EatingDisorderJobs.com. Her next book will be The Sleepless Dietitian’s Big Book of Answers: Cures for the Questions that Keep You up at Night, now available for pre-order at SleeplessDietitian.com.

Description of Presentation:

Why do individuals diagnosed with the same eating disorder respond differently to the same treatment? Because they don’t have the same disease. Eating disorder diagnostic criteria sort people into categories based on their most recent symptoms without any consideration for underlying cause or individual differences. It’s time to replace this outdated model with a system based on how people actually develop and recover from dysfunctional eating. Taking a developmental and anthropological approach, dietitian Jessica Setnick looks at eating behavior as the functional outcome of underlying causes, setting the stage for a much more accurate and effective assessment and treatment path.

Learning Objectives:

Based on the content of the workshop participants will be able to:

1. Describe the purpose of DSM diagnostic criteria for eating disorders and state how they fail to fulfill their purpose.

2. List the four categories of origin of dysfunctional eating behaviors.

3. Explain how crisis stabilization fits in to the ODEB model.
