Health at Every Size: Clinical Applications
Application of Health at Every Size in Eating Disorder Treatment
Presented by Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD, CD
The Health at Every Size (HAES) approach is used most commonly in treatment with clients who are in larger bodies or struggle with binge eating. This presentation will discuss the utility of HAES in nutrition counseling and psycho-therapeutic work for individuals with all eating disorder diagnoses, all body sizes, and for all levels of care (i.e., outpatient, partial hospitalization, residential). HAES principles will be presented, case examples with specific interventions will be used, and the exploration of a practitioner’s own attitudes on weight and health will be discussed.
Clinicians that have a working knowledge of Health at Every Size (HAES) will find this as an opportunity to learn clinical applications in the field of eating disorders and be continually challenged to see new ways to utilize the priniciples of HAES. Three CEUs are pending for Dietitians from Commission on Dietetic Registration and for Therapists/Counselors/Social Workers from Washington Association of Marriage and Family Therapists.
