Recipe for Change:
Integrating the Science of Nutrition 
& the Science of Emotion

Presented by
Jodi Krumholz, RD, LD/N & Melanie Smith, LMHC

Clinicians and researchers in the fields of psychology and nutrition have long been aware that there is more to the story of understanding our relationship with food, exercise and care of our bodies. Decades of research in emotion science point to strong evidence that extreme or unhealthy eating, exercise or body management behaviors often develop, and are maintained, when an individual has difficulty accepting and tolerating emotions they find challenging.

This presentation will discuss the connection between emotions and eating behaviors in eating disorder clients and will provide practical guidance for integrating the principles of emotion exposure with nutrition therapy interventions.
