Parent Eating Competence: Considerations in Eating Disorder Treatment
PARENT EATING COMPETENCE: CONSIDERATIONS IN EATING DISORDER TREATMENT
Family based feeding is straight forward on the surface. The approach takes advantage of the parent’s knowledge as it relates to their child’s eating so that they can feed their child in recovery. But what happens if the parent you are working with does not have sound eating or feeding practices to begin with? They may be dealing with their own distortions or confidence and will need support. As a clinician, you may find yourself managing more than one client in a family when working in the eating disorder field.

She is a certified eating disorder registered dietitian through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. She is a member of the Ellyn Satter Institute Faculty.

For over 24 years Jennifer has worked at CentraCare Health in St. Cloud, MN and specializes in the treatment of eating disorders. She works with children and adults to support their efforts to achieve effective and functional feeding and eating. Her work in the area of eating disorders led her to the conclusion that the Satter eating competence and feeding dynamics models are protective for children when considering prevention and treatment modalities for childhood feeding and eating issues, including pediatric weight divergence trends. Since her first exposure to the Satter feeding dynamics model in 1996, she has incorporated it into her practice to support patients and family members during treatment.
