Avoidant restrictive food intake disorder- ARFID Presented by: Shawna Melbourn, Registered Dietitian

Avoidant restrictive food intake disorder, or ARFID, was introduced in the DSM-V in 2013. “Because ARFID prevalence, risk factors, and maintaining mechanisms are not known, prevailing treatment approaches are based on clinical experience rather than data.” (Thomas et al, Curr Psychiatry Rep, 2017)

Shawna has been working with clients with ARFID for many years, in her presentation she describes in detail the various treatment approaches she uses in her practice including:

  • Respect the experience of fear
  • Trans-diagnostic nutrition rehabilitation process
  • Family based treatment
  • Managing mealtime madness
  • Introducing food exposure therapy
  • Food chaining
