Module III

The participants in group will learn to identify and assess adverse childhood experiences (ACE) and resilient childhood experiences (RCE) to identify attachment issues leading to constriction for avoidant/restrictive intake disorder (ARFID). The participants will learn how to work with other practitioners to coordinate care for the ARFID patient/client.

 

Module IV

The participants will learn to regulate the avoidant/restrictive intake disorder (ARFID) patient/client.
