Description: Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) are increasingly seeking mental health resources to help them address disordered eating and co-occurring mental health issues. In light of the increasing recognition of the impact of systemic racism and associated historical and intergenerational trauma on everything from brain development to one’s ability to fulfill their genetic potential, it is incumbent on professionals to understand at the deepest level possible the lived experience of these trauma effects and their impact on disordered eating. The cultural underpinnings of the training and supervision of most mental health professionals does not include an understanding of the lived experiences of BIPOC individuals. These experiences include and are often influenced by the events their ancestors were subjected to as well as experiences of ongoing microaggressions and discrimination.
