Nutrition education is a major component in the treatment of eating disorders at all levels of care. Often nutrition education is one dimensional, providing limited in vivo experience for patients and making the application of information difficult in other settings. Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy has been well established as a treatment method for treating anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders to help challenge a patients’ irrational beliefs, fears, and phobias. Exposure therapy has also shown to have an important role in the treatment of eating disorders, including helping individuals to introduce fear foods and decrease episodes of bingeing and purging. Dietitians who learn to incorporate ERP into nutrition education can help their patients to advance their recovery and generalize their nutrition recommendations to the real world.
