The Get Permission Approach to Anxious Eaters, Anxious Mealtimes
We will look at support for extremely picky or anxious eaters and their families from the perspective of relationships, motivation, mealtimes, and opportunities for both parents and child success. Who are these pickiest of eaters? Why are they picky? What is the Get Permission Approach and how can its strategies help? What do we need to think about as we gather information for assessing and understanding these worried eaters? What does research tell us about what works and what does not? How can we help parents understand their worried eaters and what strategies can we use to help build mealtime peace, mealtime success, and mealtime enjoyment? This course will be presented in lecture, discussion, video and case presentations, and interactive opportunities.
