Family-Owned, Patient-Focused: The Renfrew Center Difference


Episode 15: Fat Bodies & Eating Disorder Treatment with Jessica Elwart, LCAT, RDT

Through the lens of a therapist who has lived in a fat body for most of her life, Jessica Elwart (she/her), a licensed creative arts and eating disorder therapist, joins this dynamic conversation with Ashley and Sam. Jess sheds light on drama therapy as a treatment approach for body image issues, provides an overview of the fat liberation movement, highlights the necessary process of dismantling internalized fatphobia within both clients and clinicians, and offers practical tips and tools for fat folks navigating eating disorder recovery in a world rife with weight stigma and anti-fat biases.
