Dietitian Seasonings and Therapist Reasonings

Jan 12, 2020

When do you know your client is ready for intuitive eating when they have been in the throws of an eating disorder? Please welcome our first guest on our podcast Ms. Evelyn Tribole, the registered dietitian who co-authored THE book Intuitive Eating A Revolutionary Program that Works!

Meredith and Jill had the opportunity of interviewing Evelyn for this part 2 of a 2 part interview. Evelyn discusses how working as a team in the eating disorders field and emphasizes the important of consistent communication, allows each team member the freedom and latitude of discussing IE while staying in their scope of practice.

What about groups? Should IE groups only be led by the therapist. Emotions and self care concepts are discussed. What about dietitians? Should this profession only lead groups on IE? Food and eating are discussed. 

What about higher level of care? Should IE be discussed in RTC, PHP or IOP when a client is in the throws of an eating disorder? If YES, then HOW? Evelyn describes what her program would look like if she were to design a program.
