What Every Therapist Should Know About Nutrition

Co-Sponsored by SCCPA and CPA

What Every Therapist Should Know About Nutrition

Saturday, January 8th @ 10:00 - 11:30 AM, 1.5CE

Fifty percent of Americans are actively trying to lose weight, and rates of eating disorders have doubled from 2000-2006 to 2013-2018, increasing more rapidly among LGBTQ+ and BIPOC populations. This means that many of your clients have weight concerns or may have an eating disorder.  Have you ever wondered how to support these clients in a way that is evidence-based? What does the evidence say about diets like intermittent fasting and veganism? How can you quickly assess for an eating disorder? How do you know when its time to refer out to an eating disorder-specialized dietitian and therapist? Get these as well as any other nutrition-related questions answered in this presentation by Fiona Young, MS, RD, a Registered Dietitian in private practice treating patients with chronic health conditions and eating disorders.   


Fiona Young, MS, RD, is a Registered Dietitian in private practice treating patients with chronic illnesses and eating disorders. She has clinical and research experience working with the Los Gatos Therapy Center and the Stanford Prevention Research Center. Her approach uses Motivational Interviewing, CBT, and an Intuitive Eating framework to help clients experience freedom around food while reducing blood pressure, cholesterol, and A1C. Fiona also teaches Science, Physiology, and Nutrition at San Jose State University.  

Learning objectives :

1. Explain why rates of eating disorders are increasing.

2. Explain which populations are most affected.

3. List two tools to assess for the presence of an eating disorder.

4. Describe whether sugar addiction or any of the following five diet styles (Intermittent fasting, vegan
