Dietitian Seasonings and Therapist Reasonings

Jul 8, 2019

Meredith and Jill discuss dealing with dieting parents, spouses, siblings, etc. when treating a client with an eating disorder. Often an adolescent or client with an eating disorder's biggest support system is their parent, sibling or spouse. What if their biggest support system is also dieting? How do you get a sport system on the same page? Do you convince the parent for example to stop dieting and embrace intuitive eating? What if they question buying challenge foods to have in the house? What is the dietitian's role? How might a therapist handle a situation like this? Meredith and Jill discuss cases and examples of an often frequent scenario in the treatment of eating disorders.
