More info


The Guidebook for Nutrition Treatment of Eating Disorders serves as a resource to clinicians who are providing nutrition interventions to individuals with eating disorders. While this guidebook is not intended to provide comprehensive medical nutrition therapy, it serves as an excellent foundation based on best available research and current best practices and offers benefits to clinicians with limited experience treating these disorders. This webinar will be valuable to nutrition professionals and also to clinicians in other fields, especially the mental health fields.
