Nutrition Strategies for Eating Disorders
Many college health professionals treat students with eating disorders on campus in both the counseling center and student health facilities. However, many campuses do not have a dietitian on staff that is well-versed in proper nutrition related specifically to eating disorder recovery. This workshop will educate clinicians to use the appropriate guidelines with their students in developing eating related goals for the recovery, while combatting popular dieting myths.
Many schools lack the budget necessary to employ a dietitian with an expertise in eating disorders. Many colleges and universities are located in suburban or rural areas that make commuting to off-campus providers difficult.
This activity will provide education to non-dietitian clinicians so that they can know what is reasonably expected for a basic meal plan, as well as how to combat common dieting myths that people adhere to. The speaker will also provide specific strategies for increasing food intake in someone who is restricting, as well as tips for decreasing binge behaviors. Special considerations will be discussed for navigating on-campus dining.
