As nutrition professionals working with clients with mental health diagnoses we use working models of how the diagnoses interact with food and exercise behaviors. This program will introduce the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model, an evidence-based therapeutic intervention that is particularly effective in treating addictions and the trauma underlying many disordered eating patterns. This will be examined from a dietitian's perspective including a case study that show the self-protective function of polarized cognitions that drive addictive behaviors and eating disorder.
