Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders (ERED) in Action: Case Studies of a Paradigm Shift for Dietitians
September 19 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am PDT
In response to requests for a follow-up to the Introduction to Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders (ERED) webinar, Annie and Rachel will offer case study examples illustrating how dietitians can apply ERED principles. This somatically-integrative treatment approach shifts the focus of nutrition work from meal plan compliance to increased capacity to take in nourishment. During our time together, Annie and Rachel will share examples of clinical applications of the ERED approach and its impact on treatment outcomes.
Following this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Describe the 4 principles of the ERED model.
- Re-conceptualize eating disorder behaviors as expressions of barriers to embodied eating using the map of the Action Cycle.
- Apply ERED principles and maps to case conceptualization.
- Describe an eating disorder recovery treatment plan using ERED approach
- List three treatment goals for dietitians from the ERED perspective.

Annie Goldsmith, RD, LDN (she/her/hers) holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester in Brain and Cognitive Sciences and attended Winthrop University for her graduate coursework in human nutrition. Her educational and professional trajectory has always been guided by a strong curiosity about the ways our biology and psychology interact to inform our human experience. Annie worked in neuroscience research labs at New York University and Davidson College before pursuing a career in nutrition. She has experience treating eating disorders at the PHP, IOP, and outpatient levels of care. She opened her outpatient group practice, Second Breakfast Nutrition, in 2015.
Annie’s practice is rooted in a foundational belief in the inherent worthiness of all bodies. She centers weight-inclusive, social justice-oriented, and trauma-informed frameworks in her approach to eating disorder care and recovery. Annie became interested in somatic and polyvagal-informed approaches to nutrition therapy in 2018 when she began training with The Embodied Recovery Institute. She is passionate about working with clients from a “bottom-up” approach, centering and supporting the wisdom of the body and its innate capacity for healing.
