Description

When Self-Love Isn't Enough: How Health Practitioners Can Support Body Appreciation in an Unjust World

By: Linda Bacon, PhD

When we walk into a room, our body precedes us, affecting how we are perceived and treated. The feeling that our bodies don’t properly represent us or cause us to be treated in a way we don’t appreciate is common for people with marginalized identities, whether it’s because we’re fat or thin, of color, gender non-conforming, disabled, were born across a border, or have other marginalized status(es). These challenges of being “seen” can lead to struggles with healthy embodiment, including eating disorders.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
-Demonstrate understanding of the significance and impact of social determinants on the
development of body dissatisfaction and the health and well-being of their clients.
-Develop the cultural humility that enables delivery of compassionate, ethical, relevant and
effective care to people of different social, economic, and cultural groups.
-Identify strategies to help clients manage the various social identities that provide them with advantages or make them targets for stigma, discrimination, marginalization and invisibility.
