Grand Finale: Encore Please!
This will be the last podcast of Dietitian Seasonings & Therapist Reasonings......we have served our community for two years and are ready to close this chapter of our work in the eating disorder community.
We hope this podcast was helpful in your journey in understanding eating disorders through the encouragement and process of supervision concepts (vs just education).
ill and Meredith review basics about digestive issues that one often sees when working with clients that are struggling with an eating disorder.
There are some great podcasts that cover more in depth- stomach issues- which often clients want to focus on food to change or eliminate. Do you have clients with "IBS" or "constipation, diarrhea, or vomiting" or perhaps struggle with sleep?
Good 'Jill' Hunting
We're back! Yes, right before Thanksgiving Day to boot!
Today Jill and Meredith discuss countertransference. This information is from Lisa Ferentze. Check out her resources at the Ferentze Institute .
Have you ever seen a movie or TV show that had a therapist role. Were they ethical? Would YOU do this in session? Lisa Ferentze discusses Wilson and Lindy's models of countertransference. Listen on as Meredith and Jill will highlight a few areas from this training.
What is countertransfere
Macros 101: Understanding carbs, protein and fat
Jill takes the stage this week to discuss the importance of understanding macronutrients. The current "diet" trend is for clients to be "counting macronutrients." What are macronutrients? What do you mean by "counting them?" Jill discusses the very basics of macronutrients. What they are and how they are described in nutrition and dietetics. She also goes through basic functions of macronutrients.
[REPOST] Season 2, Episode 6: A Wrinkle In Time
Yep, we are a bit behind on recording but have several new episodes coming up! We decided to repost this important episode. Enjoy! Be tuned in to next Monday for a new episode.
All in a WORD
Meredith and Jill discuss the words one uses in conversation with clients and also in conversations between colleagues and professionally.
What words are we talking about? For example saying "completed suicide" vs "committed suicide." Calories vs energy? How about "obesity" which is often referred to as the "O" word within the ED community.
Listen on as Meredith and Jill discuss the WORDs we use and how they can hold deep meaning. Do you want to be "right" or do you want to be "effective?"
These ladies have some of the best knowledge and outlook on eating disorders. They changed my life!
Episode from 09-21-20
I think this is very good but feel that in a couple of the episodes they indicate that they have little faith that older clients with long standing and severe disorders can recover and prefer not to work with them.
A must listen to for all RDNs and mental health provider
Jill and meredith do an
Excellent job of discussing important topics when private practice providers work with all types of clients. They provide humor, relegate examples and this is a show to listen to if you want to continue to learn and grow !
