Meal supervision is often one of the most anxiety provoking situations for both suffers of an eating disorder and clinicians alike.
This workshop will explore the challenging elements of meal supervision and offer effective strategies for ensuring it is delivered as part of a therapeutic intervention. There will be an opportunity to discuss the challenging situations that clinicians face in various settings, as well as observe and be involved in meal supervision scenarios.
The target audience for this workshop includes clinicians involved in or interested in providing meal supervision such as dieticians, nurses and occupational therapists
