How Whiteness Shows Up In Your Work and What to Do About It
This webinar will help clinicians identify the influences of white feminism on the existing eating disorder treatment models. Participants will be asked to participate in a reckoning with and radical departure from white-centered frameworks.
Following this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Identify how whiteness shows up in their work

- Come away with at least two ways they can shift their practice
