Nutrition education in the treatment of eating disorders: a suggested 10 session course
Research has shown that many patients with eating disorders have poor nutritional knowledge. A dietitian can provide nutritional information and guidance to enable the patient to make food choices based on fact, not fear. The 10 session schedule presented here is designed to present factual information, then the opportunity for the individual to apply this to themselves. The format makes particular reference to the low body weight patient. The course can be used either in individual or group sessions.
