Binge Eating Disorder Treatment for Dietitians May Study Group
May 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT
This 60-minute live virtual study group is open and free to all enrolled in the EDRD Pro Binge Eating Disorder: Treatment: A Course for Dietitians! Hosted by Aaron Flores, the aim of this hour is to have a space to continue to increase knowledge and skills for dietitians supporting clients with Binge Eating Disorder. This group will complement BED course content and allow for questions related to course material.
There is no group size limit at this time (subject to change), but registration is required in advance. Dietitians will earn 1 CE credit for course attendance: groups will not be recorded to maintain privacy and encourage open discussion, so attendance is expected. Upon registration, please submit a brief description of a question, dilemma, and/or theme that you’d like to ask Aaron for discussion with the group.
This study group will meet on Monday, May 1st, at 2 pm PST (USA) / Tuesday, May 2nd at 7 am AEST (Australia).
Questions? Please email Aaron at [email protected].
Examples of Questions and/or Themes to Submit:
- A practice dilemma
- A difficult conversation (with a client, colleague, another provider, caregiver, etc.)
- A boundary issue (e.g., emailing between sessions)
- Something you’ve been feeling stuck with
- Stages of change
- Working with shame, grief, body image
- Scope of practice
- Reflecting, affirming, other counseling skills
- Objective vs Subjective binge eating
- How do I know when someone is ready to move on to more Intuitive Eating?
- Discussing sudden changes in weight
Can I attend each month?
Yes, for now, there is no limit to how often you can attend. Registration is open to all enrolled students in the EDRD Pro Binge Eating Disorder: Treatment: A Course for Dietitians.
Can I submit a case for discussion?
This group is not a specific case consultation opportunity because individual case scenarios require more time and are ideal for 1:1 supervision. Both Aaron Flores and Fiona Sutherland, our BED Course hosts, offer supervision if this is what you are seeking.
Will I receive CE credit?
Yes, if you log your attendance at the end of the meeting, you will receive 1 CE credit hour for attendance. Meetings will not be recorded.
