MS052: Healthy Eating in Schools

Friday, February 21, 2014 2:00 PM–3:50 PM


This miniskills workshop will review the healthy student approach to eating, body acceptance, and self-care. Participants will develop and intervention-ready understanding for how healthy eating and body acceptance are established as well has how disordered trajectories evolve. Empirically supported interventions will be reviewed using a three-pillar approach: intuitive eating and nutrition; healthy physical activity; mindfulness, self-care, and emotional regulation. Screening and assessment tools will be reviewed and referral discussed.
