In this three hour workshop, the presenter will provide an overview of the intersectionality between the etiology of eating disorders and contemporary American diet culture, with a specific emphasis on internalized weight biases and the impact this has on clinical work. A deeper clinical dive following this overview will explore appropriate evidence-based treatment (EBTs) and interventions, and the particular limitations of these strategies relative to transgender populations. An introduction to Health at Every Size (HAES) as an innovative new approach to address weight bias and stigma will provide participants additional strategies and tools to promote body and size acceptance in clinical practice.
This workshop is designed to help participants:
- Participants will identify and asses their own internalized weight bias as it relates to clinical care.
- On completion of this training, participants will be able to explain and discuss diet culture as a contributing factor in the development of eating disorders.
- On completion of this training, participants will be able to describe and utilize Healthy at Every Size core principals as guidelines in treatment planning, particularly with respect to weight management in the therapeutic setting.
- On completion of this training, participants will be able to utilize at least 3 strategies to promote body & size acceptance among clients with eating disorders.
