Webinar Description
If you missed Ragen’s keynote talk at the 2018 MEDA conference now is your chance to hear her again! This talk will begin by examining the messages that come to clients (and to all of us) through our culture about beauty, our bodies, and health. We’ll discuss the ways that these messages can affect clients’ relationships with their bodies, food, and movement. We’ll look at how these messages can perpetuate eating disorders, disrupt recovery efforts, and prevent full recovery. Finally we’ll discuss how using a framework of Size Acceptance and Health at Every Size can give us practical, realistic options to help clients repair the damage that these messages have done, and create strategies that will support them in dealing with these messages through their recovery journey and beyond.
