alyssa-mitola lissaFor November’s edition of First Wednesdays at OPC, Oliver-Pyatt Centers Director of Food Services Lissa Garcia, RD, LD/N and Clementine adolescent treatment program Nutritionist Alyssa Mitola, MS, RD, LD/N will present “The Kitchen’s Perspective: Creating a Safe Place Through Supported Exposures and Skill Development in the Treatment of Eating Disorders”. The presenters aim to enable the modern eating disorder clinician to empower clients using cooking and kitchen exposures. Through hands-on supported experiences, unaddressed issues can be revealed, allowing for moving corrective experiences and true peace with food. Discussion will include how co-occurring conditions impact the planning and approach for successful experiential activities. Attendees will learn different ways the eating disorder presents in the kitchen setting and key points of exposure support.

Through this presentation, participants will be able to identify three different kitchen exposures that can be utilized in the treatment of eating disorders, name two interventions to reduce anxiety during cooking exposures and define two co-occurring conditions that impact approaches to cooking exposures.

Breakfast begins at 9 am and the presentation will be from 9:30-10:30. 1 CE hour will be offered for: PhD, PsyD, LMFT, LMHC, LCSW, LPCC, and RD. If you would like to join OPC’s First Wednesdays on November 2nd, please RSVP to Florida Outreach Manager Callie Chavoustie at or RSVP here by October 31st.
