Description

Patients of all sizes and shapes enter treatment with emotional impairment due to internalized weight stigma and a history of chronic dieting, with or without eating disorder diagnoses. As clinicians, we may observe patients flip from out-of-control substance use to over control of body weight/shape, but we don’t always know how to help patients care for their bodies in recovery, especially in a culture where disordered behavior is routinely prescribed. This workshop will increase awareness and understanding of these issues through self-reflection, case study, and reviewing current research on weight, health, and the positive impact of weight-neutral attitudes on health.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Psychologists
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
Educational Goal
The educational goal of this workshop is for participants to be able to help patients re-frame body image and
related issues in non-pathologizing terms and offer tools and resources that are based in reality.
Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify 2 or more symptoms/behaviors that may indicate a patient is experiencing body image preoccupation and/or risk of disordered eating.

  • Define "Health At Every Size (c)," "Intuitive Eating" and "Weight Neutral/Weight Inclusive Healthcare"

  • Name 2 or more research studies that call into question common assumptions about the relationship between weight and health.

  • Identify 3 or more health benefits of a weight neutral approach toward healthcare indicated by current research.

  • Identify 4 baseline distortions in perception shared by all humans that make people susceptible to disordered eating and body-focused obsession.

  • Facilitate an experiential exercise to help patients gain awareness of authentic values and needs they may be attempting to meet via control of size, shape, appearance.

  • Identify 3 mindfulness training resources that can be matched/recommended to clients according to their worldview, religious practices and/or personal beliefs.

  • Identify 4 or more resources where patients can access ongoing support for weight inclusive care after discharge from treatment.
