About the Speaker:
Cristen Harris is a registered dietitian nutritionist, certified sports dietitian, and exercise physiologist. She has over 26 years of experience in a wide variety of settings including clinical care, fitness and rehabilitation, community health, higher education, research, and private practice. Dr. Harris is currently an Associate Professor and Director of the Didactic Program in Dietetics at Bastyr University. In this dual role, she educates and advises future nutrition professionals, and researches factors that influence eating behaviors. She also maintains a small but robust private practice, specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and child feeding issues. Her approach to counseling, education, research and parenting is greatly influenced by Ellyn Satter’s models: eating and activity approaches that incorporate flexibility, attunement, trust and responsiveness to body signals. Dr. Harris is passionate about facilitating the paradigm shifts in how people view their bodies, food and eating (with trust and joy!); how health and nutrition professionals advise clients and the public on eating (with the goal of eating competence!); and how parents feed their children (with an appropriate division of responsibility).
