These three workshops are all mp3s that you can either stream online or download to your computer or phone and listen to as many times as you want.
You also get:
4. All slides and handouts from the original presentations in pdf format. You can follow along online while you listen, print hard copies to keep, or save to your computer for future reference. All patient education handouts are in pdf form with permission to print an unlimited number of times for use in your practice.
5. Eating Disorder Nutrition Counseling Training Videos featuring Jessica mock counseling her summer interns, demonstrating different situations and scenarios.
6. A 30-minute phone or video call with Jessica. (YES, really!) We don't know of any other online eating disorder course that includes a live call with the speaker. This is your opportunity to ask questions and discuss your current professional and patient situations with Jessica. (Don't worry, she's really nice. But if you really don't want to, this call is only required if you are a CDR-credentialed practitioner and wish to receive CEUs.)
7. A certificate of completion and 34 Pre-approved Continuing Professional Education Units for CDR-credentialed professionals (RDNs and DTRs).
This is the first time all of this audio, video, information and support has ever been included in one package, for less than the cost of purchasing them individually and much less than traveling to a conference where you hope the things you want to know will be covered.
The Ultimate Eating Disorders Training for Dietitians Package also includes copies of every one of Jessica's books:
8. The Eating Disorders Clinical Pocket Guide: Quick Reference for Healthcare Providers, Second Edition. This tiny but mighty spiral-bound powerhouse is known around the world for easy-to-find and essential information like diagnostic codes and criteria, assessment questions for each type of behavior, lists of acronyms, and so much more.
9. The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics Pocket Guide to Eating Disorders, Second Edition. Structured around the Nutrition Care Model, this book has A to Z all the evidence-based and practical guidelines to what we know and what we don't know yet about eating disorder nutrition counseling, including drug-nutrient interactions, PES statements, interpretation of lab values, and on and on and on.
10. The Counseling Dietitian's Big Book of Answers: The Cure for the Questions that Keep You Up at Night. This is Jessica's long-awaited compilation of actual questions from dietitians she's received over the years and her straight-forward, comforting (and sometimes surprising!) answers. You'll be one of the first to receive a copy as soon as it's complete.
11. A Dietitian's Guide to Professional Speaking: Expert Advice for Pitching, Presenting & Getting Paid. No, this isn't an eating disorders book. But Jessica believes that every dietitian has something important to say and wants to help lift up your voice, whether in your community or across the planet.
12. The Eating Disorders Book of Hope and Healing: Advice for Anyone Who Eats. Jessica's very first "book," this pack of supportive mini-cards is the perfect pocket-sized support partner for you or someone you know. It's also a great conversation starter for a support group or nutrition group you lead.
13. NEW! An institutional license, authorizing your facility or practice to share all included mp3s and materials with an unlimited number of current or future staff members. (Note that only those who participate in a follow-up phone call with Jessica will receive continuing education credit and a certificate of completion as the call serves as the CDR-required interactive portion of the course. One call for up to six participants is included in the package. Additional participant calls can be purchased at a later date if desired.)
Once you order, you will receive a link to each workshop's mp3s and accompanying materials, as well as instructions for setting up your call with Jessica to obtain continuing education credit. Your books will be shipped at no charge to US mailing addresses. If your mailing address is outside of the United States, Celena will get your prior approval of the shipping charge before sending the books.
As always, we have a 100% money-back guarantee at Understanding Nutrition. If for any reason the Ultimate Eating Disorder Training for Dietitians Package is not what you expected, please contact Celena and she will refund your total purchase price no questions asked AND you can still keep the books. Our goal is for you to find what you're looking for, even if it's not from us. Please note that due to CDR rules we cannot process a refund after CEU credits have been awarded. Therefore if you are requesting a refund, it must be prior to scheduling the final call with Jessica.
If you have any questions or would like to pay in installments, please email Celena at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 214-503-7100. She is Jessica's right hand woman and will be happy to help.
