Practice Pavestones will be hosting webinars in 2016. The first is to be scheduled for April 2016 and will be announced in Practice Pavestones Newsletter
‘The Power, Perils and Pitfalls of Working wth a Meal Plan’
This webinar was originally produced in October 2015 for members of The Australian Psychological Society PEWBIG Interest Group to assist practitioners interested in understanding the role of the Dietitian in ED recovery. The webinar content is relevant for all practitioners who assist clients with improving disordered eating.
In this webinar Tara explores the use of the meal plan in eating disorder recovery. Some revision of the physiological impacts of starvation (which underpin the necessity for improved nutrition in ED recovery) is presented. The core focus of the webinar is to explore common dynamics of change that can work for and against the use of a meal plan to support improvements in nutrition status. Attendees are invited to consider aspects of therapeutic alliance and client motivation to enable effective use of the meal plan tool. Limitations of the meal plan and strategies for overcoming these through sound use of evidence based counselling skills are explored.
