The Non-Diet Approach is a practice framework built within the Health At Every Size ® paradigm, with a strong social justice foundation.

On Day 2 we explore social justice both as an idea, and as a practice & how it intersects with Non Diet Approach-based care. Starting off with definition of terms, we’ll dig into some of the nuance & complexity of promoting equity & justice for all bodies in a culture which can make this really tough! We’ll offer not only our own experience, but provide you with a ton of resources you can explore in your own time to more deeply embed these ideas into your practice.

Working with Women with PCOS: Navigating the Real-Life Challenges

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common lifetime condition in women that presents Dietitians with many challenges beyond advice about diet and lifestyle. This one-day workshop aims to increase confidence in navigating the broader issues and difficult conversations we sometimes have to have, while remaining client centred, evidence informed and within our scope of practice. Core challenges the facilitator will explore include issues concerning appetite, hormones, body weight (including realistic expectations), body image and eating disorder risk. Addressing these matters can be a complex process. Sound work in this area walks a skilful line to prevent chronic dieting and eating or exercise disorders in a high-risk population, while helping clients to manage important lifestyle choices. There are learnable ways of doing this well to better support our clients. In this workshop a mixture of practical skills, counselling techniques and self-reflection will be used to explore how we can develop an ethical and effective Dietetic practice that can make a real, long-term difference to our clients with PCOS. Registration includes a workbook with a CPD quiz and full days catering. Class size is capped for your optimal learning experience.
