- Learning the eating competence method for working with adult eating problems.
- Applying ecSatter and fdSatter to clinical issues, such as diabetes, heart disease, child and adult obesity, cystic fibrosis.
- Checking your curriculum with the evaluation rubric for ecSatter and sDOR to be sure your recommendations are consistent with ecSatter and fdSatter.
- Applying ecSatter and fdSatter in particular target groups, such as pregnancy, sports nutrition, geriatrics.
- Accommodating policy mandates while practicing ecSatter and fdSatter.

How to prepare for mentoring
Study one of Ellyn Satter’s books. Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family addresses adult eating competence as well as does a brief treatment of feeding dynamics. Child of Mine addresses feeding in detail, birth through preschool. Your Child’s Weight addresses younger children more briefly and goes into detail for school-age children and adolescents. Although Your Child’s Weight concentrates on weight issues, it is generally applicable.
