NEW Online Eating Disorder Training for Dietitians and Dietetic Students

  • posted by Marci Evans
  • Wednesday, June 01, 2016

 

10% off until August 1st!

 

I am incredibly excited to announce the launch of my Eating Disorders Online Training today!

Whether you’ve been practicing for 20 years, or you’re a dietetic student or intern, the chances are high that you’ve received zero training on how to counsel people with eating disorders. Given that nearly 10% of the US populations falls along the ED spectrum (not to mention subclinical EDs) this is a huge problem!

I am Certified Eating Disorder Dietitian and IAEDP Approved Supervisor. I developed this 5 part series because I know that clients with eating disorders NEED a skilled, confident, and capable dietitian. And the purpose of this 5 part series is to lay the groundwork for you to start to develop the necessary skills to begin working with this population.

You’ll get 7.5 CEUS in this 5 part series during which I’ll cover topics including:

  • Assessment
  • Diagnosis
  • Integrating therapeutic techniques appropriately into nutrition counseling
  • How to effectively communicate and assert yourself within the context of a treatment team
  • Developing a nutrition prescription and food plan
  • Dealing with co-occurring medical and mental health diagnoses
  • Food exposures
  • Body Image
  • Metabolism
  • Exercise
  • And so much more!

Don’t have time to watch all 5 training videos sequentially? No problem--you can also pick one specific topic you want to focus on, rather than purchasing the entire series. You can also choose whether you want to rent or buy each video for future reference.

My hope is that you will find the training as helpful as the other dietitians who have already taken my online and live courses. My goal is that you walk away feeling more confident, more capable, and more empowered to treat people suffering from eating disorders.

The Mindful Eating World Summit

  • posted by Marci Evans
  • Monday, March 23, 2015

I was honored to participate in The Mindful Eating World Summit. It felt like a great way to share, with a larger audience, my thought and experiences as a nutrition therapist. My interview airs on Wednesday, March 25th so please follow this link to catch all of the details.

Mindfulness is a catchy word used with so much frequency, many of us have stopped thinking about what it actually means. In my interview I share with listeners:

1. How mindfulness informs my work.

2. How I became interested in integrating mindfulness-based practices into my work as a nutrition therapist.

3. The mindfulness experts that have had an impact in changing the way I work.

4. How the practice of mindfulness has the capacity to improve one’s relationship with food.

5. One of my favorite mindfulness based practices.

6. My thoughts on how mindfulness can (and is!) transforming some of our cultures unhealthy standards of beauty.

7. How the practice of mindfulness facilitates self-trust.

And below I am providing my freebie! A gift to all listeners. It’s a guided mindfulness experience that will help you practice identifying hunger and fullness. I hope you’ll enjoy it and would love your feedback on my interview and guided meditation. Did you learn anything new? Was it helpful? Do you have any follow-up questions.

Thanks for tuning in.
