As clinicians we have been working hard to combat hidden biases and stigma that impact clients, but how do we work with body shame and self-deprecating thoughts about bodies when it is so prevalent in our culture? Body shaming presents itself in a plethora of ways, including depression, social anxiety, substance abuse, and isolation. It is also one of the strongest risk factors for developing eating disorders and control issues that can lead to self-harm and suicidal thoughts. In this training, we will examine the roots of body shame and learn skills for undoing the harmful grip of self-judgment.

  • Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:
  • Describe medical, psychosocial, moral, and social/cultural perspectives on weight and health and how these tenets affect beliefs about oneself
  • Educate clients how history, current diet culture, and media affect attitudes to body acceptance
  • Identify terms associated with body liberations such as Body justice, body liberation, intuitive eating, thin idealism, fatphobia, body positivity, diet mentality, the fat acceptance movement, and the Health At Every Size approach.
  • Provide clients with activities they can use to start undoing the harmful grip of self-judgment.
