ecSI 2.0 Inventory: Qualifying Workshop


A Workshop for Professionals by Jennifer Harris, RDN, LD, CEDS-C

Nutritionists, health, and mental health professionals have long depended on the Satter eating and feeding models as an effective and practical way to help parents be successful with feeding and adults be confident with their eating.  Experience and research have shown that eating competence supports wellness outcomes. Persons with high eating competence scores as measured using ecSI2.0TM Inventory, do better with eating and overall health. They also do better with feeding their children.

Use this simple-to-administer, 16-question tool to guide your treatment plans and discussions with clients.  Learn how to score, interpret, and use the Inventory in practice. Case scenarios are included to enhance experiential learning.

Practitioners and educators are required to obtain permission to use this assessment instrument. Completion of this workshop, including the quiz and application, meets this requirement.

Approved for 2.0 Level II CEUs from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

Clinical experience as well as research have shown that high levels of Eating Competence correlate with parents (and adult caregivers) success and confidence with feeding children according to Satter’s Division of Responsibility in Feeding, while simultaneously supporting adults’ eating, wellbeing and health outcomes.

In addition to evaluating a client’s level of eating competence, you can sub-score the ecSI2.0TM questionnaire to determine how to focus eating competence with your clients. The sub-scored categories include eating attitudes, food acceptance, internal regulation and contextual skills capacities. Low scores on the Inventory can also indicate eating disorder risk and inform that type of assessment as well.

The inventory is a valid measure of Eating Competence for low-income females and provides a tool for researchers and educators to assess intervention outcomes and further explore the Eating Competence construct.

By completing the workshop, you’ll become familiar with the tool ecSI2.0TM Inventory, practice scoring it, and learn how to focus your time and energy in session to help clients improve their eating. Case studies are included to illustrate the process.
