Eating Disorder Workshop

Eating Disorder Workshop

Regular price $100.00 Sale

An unmissable workshop provided by Dr. Lama Mattar, who is passionate about nutrition with a PhD specialized in eating disorders and behaviors, we look forward to having her and we invite you to join us for a much needed workshop in the field of nutrition. 

Dietitians are key team members in the successful treatment of eating disorders (ED). One challenge dietitians face is that we actually represent food, the “tool” our clients with ED rely on for control, manipulation, and perceived empowerment. Participants in this workshop will appreciate the state of the art nutrition in the treatment of ED, the practical clinical techniques for managing bingeing, purging, excessive exercise, and weight restoration as well as many practical techniques to approach ED patients. 

The workshop is divided into 5 main parts covering each of the following themes:
1. Overview of Eating Disorders 
2. Medical Aspects of Eating Disorders (Symptoms, Abnormalities, Effects on the body)
3. Effective Therapy Modalities for Patients with ED (Emphasis on the role of the dietitian)
4. Nutritional Guidelines for Treating Eating Disorders 
5. Practical guidelines for counseling
