Orthorexia Nervosa
ASSESSING AND TREATING ORTHOREXIA NERVOSA: CASE STUDIES FOR DIETITIANS
Sometimes a person has an unhealthy relationship with food but their symptoms do not meet criteria for and eating disorder diagnosis. There are now various eating disorders besides those traditionally diagnosed that are becoming more commonly seen. Orthorexia nervosa (ON) is an eating disorder that has become better defined in recent years. Commonly known as the HEALTHY EATING disorder, ON involves a pursuit of pure or right eating. This webinar will define ON and examine how dietitians can assess and diagnose ON. Overall information for nutrition counseling and treatment for ON will be included. The majority of time will be spent examining two case studies in detail. A question and answer session will be held after each case study.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Define symptoms involved in diagnosing orthorexia nervosa (ON).


  • Identify aspects of ON that differ from other eating disorders (EDs).


  • Explain the course of treatment for ON.


  • Utilize learned information in practice due to examining detailed case studies.
