Nutrition therapy is an essential aspect within the eating disorder treatment team and treatment process.  Yet within the dietetic profession there is not one standard of practice for working with eating disorders.  This has opened the doors to many effective and creative approaches to "normalizing" food behaviors, and helping those who have struggled, find peace with food in a recovery setting.  This presentation will include evaluating the benefits and detriments of the different meal planning systems being used, food/meal support, experiential interventions and exercise incorporation.  Additionally, reviewing numerous nutrition experiential techniques, and outline when those are seen to be the most effectively introduced during the treatment continuum.  This will also include a brief review of how uniquely restrictive populations such as food allergies, food intolerances, vegan/vegetarians, orthorexics can be best supported with the different nutrition support methods available.
Utilizing case studies will give a full perspective to how these nutrition interventions can be best incorporated, and to further demonstrate why they can be so important within the treatment process in both a positive and negative fashion.  As a final piece to the dietary treatment puzzle, a detailed outline for creating Nutrition Standards of Care for treatment teams to utilize as a means to outline treatment goals and expectations; and to demonstrate successes and obstacles in support of what the client and the dietitian are working to achieve will be completed in a group experiential activity.
