  • Develop skills in identification and assessment of clinical eating disorders, to include Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, and Avoidant-Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID).
  • Identify sub-clinical, common eating concerns, to include over-eating, under-eating, yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, exercise concerns, and poor body image.
  • Identify and be able to utilize best practices and tools, which will include application of CBT, ACT and mindfulness-based interventions.
  • Understand and be able to apply the Intuitive Eating framework to guide work with eating concerns.


What is Intuitive Eating?

The Intuitive Eating model, developed by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, is an internally-guided process that restores one's natural ability to regulate eating. It is not a diet, but rather a relationship with food. Intuitive Eating is often considered the recovery model of choice when working with individuals with eating disorders as well as the more common challenges that many experience with eating.

Intuitive Eating based interventions can help individuals:

  • Increase self-compassion and satisfaction with food.
  • Guide eating and self-care using mindfulness and internal cues.
  • Eat in a way that supports physical and emotional health.

Training Methods:

  • Lecture/ powerpoint
  • Discussion
  • Case Studies
  • Experiential exercises
  • Live case consultation

We will use the Zoom digital meeting platform.
