The SeasonED RD: And the Greatest of These is Love
Dr. Kari Anderson shares her “Secret Sauce” and tips about:
How to allow clients a state of safety and a state without fear
How we can create the therapeutic connection so clients get the most out of our care
Her therapeutic concept of seeing the body in a state of fear or in a state of love
The dangers of bringing in preconceived ideas because of a diagnosis
And the power of centering therapy around “Tell me what it’s like to be you”
From Beth: There is a moment in this podcast that demonstrates that ED RDs are much more than a food person or even a food-relationship person with our clients. Dr. Anderson guides Beth in her real-time dilemma concerning a client situation, something we are not taught in dietetics school and that is only learned by vulnerability and love.
