Expanding, Elevating, Embodying Workshop: Nutrition Professionals as Body Image Counselors

(3 CPEUs)

We both know that body image counseling is NOT covered in school. Yet, negative body image impacts how a person nourishes and moves their body. It only makes sense that nutrition professionals develop the confidence and skills to integrate body image counseling into their repertoire.

In this recorded workshop, we will share with you 3 evidence-based models of body image and embodiment to demonstrate where and how the dietitian fits into this critical work.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this recorded training you will be able to:

  1. Put your fears to rest about that nagging question, “should I even be doing body image work?!”
  2. Better understand how your role as the nutrition professional fits into the larger picture of body image healing.
  3. Walk away with a handful of tools to integrate into your work immediately.

Fee: $70
3.0 CDR approved CPEs

I’m not a dietitian. Can I still do the trainings?
Absolutely. This training is designed for all professionals who work with clients with eating disorders.

All are welcome, however, this course is only approved for CPEU credits for dietitians in the US.

We take your potential investment in this course seriously and have poured the very best of all of our education, training, supervision, attendances at conferences, etc. into this course.

Do you provide CPEUs to anyone other than Dietitians?
No, Marci is only credentialed to provide CPEU credit for US-based dietitians who are credentialed through CDR. If you are not a US-based dietitian and want to get CPEU credit, you will need to reach out to your governing board to see if they will approve it.
My own body image is pretty crappy. Should I still join the Body Image Training course?
Double yes! Doing your own work is the first key ingredient to helping others heal their negative body image. We definitely want you here with us!
I don’t work with eating disorders. Can I still take the Body Image Training course?
Absolutely, YES! Negative body image is the norm not the exception, and this work will apply to anyone working with humans. However, Marci and Fiona are eating disorder experts who will teach from the lens of whole body healing and recovery.
