A CPSDA Member-Only Event

featuring Rebecca McConville RD, LD, CSSD, CEDS, and Riley Nickols PhD, CEDS
CPSDA is hosting an Eating Disorders in Sport Workshop, the first of its kind developed specifically for clinicians who work with competitive athletes. This full day workshop intends to inform, empower, and equip sports dietitians with evidence-based best practices that equip staff and organizations to treat these athletes with confidence and effectiveness.  Clinicians will learn how to optimally support athletes navigating eating disorder treatment by using best practices while taking into consideration available resources, both in-house and external providers, while being sensitive to the complex and multifaceted nature of an eating disorder.

This workshop will provide education, training, and practical interventions specific to: medical and psychological concerns, inherent risks and dangers of mismanaging an eating disorder case, establishment of weight goals/policies, navigating crucial conversations with athlete and sport personnel, modifying and reintegrating training during treatment, and challenges in collaborative care within a multidisciplinary treatment team.

Case study demonstrations will include relevant assessment tools and return to sport guidelines. Recommendations will be given for how athletic departments can provide sufficient training and supervision so that staff can be equipped to comprehensively assess and treat eating disorders.  Attendees will also learn how to comprehensively evaluate existing eating disorder protocols/procedures within an athletic department or sport governing body while identifying qualified personnel to assess and treat athletes who exhibit disordered eating and eating disorders.  

CPSDA will provide six attendees $750 each to attend individual and/or group supervision hours with the Rebecca McConville and/or Riley Nickols.  These six attendees will be randomly chosen at the completion of the full-day workshop.

  • Recognize potential harmful messages around nutrition recommendations in sport.
