Upcoming Events

Working Effectively with Common Childhood Eating Challenges: An Introduction to the Satter Feeding Dynamics Model

Facilitator: Eve Reed APD


Saturday August 5th 2017 BRISBANE   Flyer & Registration

About the Workshop  
Dietitians and other Health Professionals are regularly presented with parents concerned about their child’s nutritional/eating problems.  These issues typically include ‘overweight’ children, fussy eaters who are not eating a wide variety of foods, children with allergies on restricted diets and children with special needs.  
When working to solve eating, feeding, and growth problems, Health and Nutrition Professionals tend to think in terms of food selection. A fundamental change in feeding relationship training is thinking in terms of the how of feeding, not the ‘what’ and/or ‘how much’ of feeding and eating.
This workshop introduces participants to a practical understanding of the Satter Feeding Dynamics Model (fdSatter) and illustrates how children develop eating competence.  If you feel that the conventional model is not working for you or your clients and you are struggling to ‘get’ parents to change, this workshop will offer you an alternative approach to work more effectively with parents. Case examples addressing common child nutrition and/or feeding problems will be presented in order to help participants understand the feeding dynamics model. Workshop registration includes a workbook & full catering. Download flyer for more details.
