Description

Eating disorders do not discriminate, yet related assessment and treatment approaches are typically geared toward what has long been considered a “typical” client with an eating disorder: white, heterosexual, cisgender, college-educated, affluent, able-bodied, thin women. These narrow parameters do not include every body. This session will show you how to break down barriers in your practice. You will learn to support inclusion by recognizing the spectrum of body image concerns and related disordered eating in a culturally-attuned manner that takes systems of oppression and marginalization into account.
