In a world that centers thinness, diet culture, and eurocentric beauty standards, clients of all sizes can find themselves wrestling with painful issues of shame and worthiness in relation to their bodies. The hostile messages we receive about bodies and size are culturally pervasive, are often easily internalized from a young age, and can impact us across the lifespan. This workshop discusses issues of fatphobia, diet culture and restriction, and introduces anti-oppressive theoretical frameworks for discussing bodies, eating, and size with clients who are part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning communities.
This workshop is offered through Kip’s Division of Gender and Sexuality.
