About the webinar:
Children, teens and young adults with avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) severely limit the food they eat. In our upcoming webinar, Accredited Practising Dietitian Dr Brooke Harcourt provides insights into the important role dietitians play in the management of ARFID in young people. She will cover how to recognise the different presentations of ARFID, setting up and adjusting family-based therapy to meet the individual needs of patients and strategies to managing nutritional requirements of a restrictive diet. Plus, Brooke will share how dietitians are best placed to lead autonomous and responsive feeding therapy to help lower fear and anxiety about food.
