This is an episode addressing a requested topic: "How to handle clients whose trauma involves a lot of foods (either specific types of foods or certain settings or preparing foods) as an RD (ie how to do your work while staying in your lane?)"
Meredith and Jill discuss their thoughts and opinions on how to address when clients struggle with trauma specific to food concerns (such as abuse, food insecurity, etc).
Meredith discusses grounded skills and validation that can be helpful that dietitians absolutely need to know and can support a client with in session.
Also dietitians often have not been taught how to "handle emotions." Jill discussed the importance of holding space and learning the skills of validation.
