An Introduction to Working with Body Image for Dietitians

In a three-part webinar series, the Eating Disorders Interest Group (EDIG) introduces body image work for dietitians.  In the first instalment in this series, we will lay foundations of working with body image as a dietitian. This will include setting up your assessment process, discussing clinical boundaries, and where to further your knowledge and skill development.
