Dysfunctional eating behaviors (DEB) impair our patients’ abilities to make recommended nutrition changes. This session will prepare attendees to identify and address DEB using the following skills: tactfully approach a patient regarding their dysfunctional eating and related behaviors; draft an introductory rehabilitative meal plan; and refer to appropriate mental health care.
After attending this session, nutrition professionals should be able to:
- Distinguish individuals with dysfunctional eating behaviors in their current patient population.
- Design an introductory meal plan for a patient with an eating disorder.
- Propose a referral to a mental health professional when indicated.
