About the Training

Weight stigma, also known as weight bias, fatphobia, or anti-fat bias, describes the systematic oppression that people in larger bodies experience in occupational, social, and medical systems. This bias is especially harmful among people personally impacted by eating disorders. Awareness of anti-fat bias is important in providing affirming care in eating disorder treatment spaces.

This 2 CE presentation will provide considerations for eating disorder care across the size spectrum, and offer interventions and tools for clients to navigate weight stigma and fatphobia. This workshop will explore fat activism as a means of healing from weight stigma experiences.
