Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond: Cultivating Hope in an Age of Disconnection

Many eating disorder clients are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety in a polarized society where anger, prejudice, loss of civility, bullying and threats to personal safety create an atmosphere of distrust and disconnection.  Practitioners are tasked with helping clients navigate their way through emotionally-charged times by providing them with optimism, prompting dialogue that supports diverse needs and creating a sense of community. Conference 2018 will focus on evidence-based strategies, clinically relevant research and development of skills for building resilience.

Date: November 9 – 11, 2018

Free Webinar – Baby Led Weaning for RDs

Baby Led Weaning for RDs: What the Research Says (1 CEU)

Please join Jessica Coll, RD on May 1st at noon CST as she reviews the evidence behind baby led weaning (BLW).  This is a live webinar. No recording is available.

With BLW, babies feed themselves with finger foods from their first bite. Dietitians need to be ready to answer questions to make sure parents are doing it safely and babies are meeting their high nutritional needs. After this webinar based on the most recent peer-reviewed journal articles, dietitians should be able to:

– Discuss reasons parents are choosing this approach
– Identify cases where BLW isn’t appropriate
– Evaluate whether babies are more at risk of choking with BLW
– Explain whether parents can do purees and BLW
– Evaluate whether babies can meet their iron needs with BLW

*For registered dietitians only*
