Meredith and Jill touch on a difficult topic of knowing when a clinician (either dietitian or therapist) who has recovered or is in recovery with an eating disorder is ready to be in the field. Many who have developed an eating disorder (it is estimated that 50% of nutrition major have or are currently struggle with eating issues) want to work in the field to give back and help others on their journey. When is the best time? 2, 3, 5 years? Or perhaps is a few years and you have been able to go through a major even (marriage, divorce, etc) without reverting back to eating disorder behavior. What if you notice a colleague in the field that is currently struggling? Meredith and Jill explore this touchy topic in hopes of providing guidance and supevision to those entering the field.
