Melanie Jacob, RDN Speaker, Author and Eating Disorder Advocate offers training, mentoring and case consultation. Melanie is the co-author of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics practice paper Nutrition Intervention in the Treatment of Eating Disorders. She previously ran a private practice in Troy Michigan for over 15 years. She continues to advocate and educate the health care community on the use of FBT.
Research in the field of eating disorders has exposed the gap in knowledge for the practitioner who works with clients who have anorexia, bulimia or binge eating disorder or any combination of symptoms of this life threatening mental illness. Evidence based research done by world renown clinicians have laid the foundation for improved treatment options especially for the young and newly diagnosed child, adolescent or young adult.
The COVID-19 pandemic as exposed a great need for practitioners to have the tools to identify at risk clients and know the urgent steps for intervention. New research shows creative grass roots efforts to adapt the manual FBT model in a variety of treatment settings. Melanie is able to offer virtual or on site training to set up effective ways to implement protocols and track outcomes for any involved in the treatment of eating disorders.
