This workshop will begin with basic eating disorder information and go beyond to explore specific interventions, phraseology and counseling techniques for building trust, motivation, and hope. Basic information will include types of eating disorders, the disordered eating spectrum, their symptoms, medical complications and presentation.
We will discuss how to be direct and compassionate during your intake to assess for various ED behaviors and to convey understanding and competence. The workshop will also give you tools for treatment planning, nutrition interventions, how and when to use nutrition education with clients, and will even touch on meal coaching. We will discuss logistics of menu planning, your role as part of the treatment team, how to coordinate with other providers, levels of care, when to seek further supervision and when to refer. The workshop will also be an opportunity to explore the concept of embodiment as a practitioner, which is, how to bring your own body and experience into the room and when to use self-disclosure.
The format of the workshop will be part didactic and experiential with a lot of group discussion and role-plays. The nutrition philosophies underpinning this workshop are Health At Every Size, Intuitive Eating and Normal Eating, among others.
This class is open to all Wholistic Nutrition Program students as well as any current healthcare practitioner.
