Body Positive Tools To Support Eating Competence
THE BODY POSITIVE DIETITIAN: CLINICAL TOOLS FOR WORKING WITH EATING DISORDERS AND WEIGHT-RELATED ILLNESS
Many nutrition professionals have adopted the model of internal regulation of eating—-trusting regulators of hunger, appetite and satiation/satiety—-as foundational for recovery from eating struggles, for example, chronic yo-yo dieting (which has often resulted in a lot of weight gain in adulthood). But can this model work for clinical eating disorders? Do we feel we need to give different advice to someone who weighs 400 pounds versus 150 pounds?

This webinar will focus on two of Elizabeth's clinical tools, which apply Satter's construct of eating competence, for discussing eating regulation and weight with clients.
