Love or Logic: Effective Counseling Methods for Pediatric Feeding Disorders


Love or Logic: Effective Counseling Methods for Pediatric Feeding Disorders

The newly proposed definition of a Pediatric Feeding Disorder (PFD) incorporates the negative psychosocial effects that exist when there is an interruption of the child-caregiver interaction that is associated with the deficits, which occur when a child is unable to thrive. In this course, you will learn two evidenced-based methods for providing effective counseling for both increased buy-in and ultimately, improved outcomes in your practice of therapy. Both methods will provide the learner with specific verbiage with which to implement the very next day!

Key Learning Outcomes:

As a result of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

  • Recall at least 3 techniques of each counseling method.
  • Explain the clinical application of each technique recalled.
  • Discuss the need for additional education and research regarding counseling in the field of Speech Pathology.
