Anti-Fat Bias for Helpers 101

Fat clients are in desperate need of practitioners who understand anti-fatness, to know that they aren’t going to receive unsolicited diet advice or unhelpful suggestions that perpetuate disordered eating and possibly retraumatize them.

About the event

In the first hour, Alexandra will guide us through:

  • What anti-fat bias is, it’s history, and how it intersects with other forms of oppression,
  • How anti-fatness enacts modern-day colonization,
  • The history and development of the BMI and why it is irrelevant and harmful,
  • The systemic and interpersonal impacts of anti-fat oppression,
  • How anti-fat bias shows up in helping professions (often sneakily) and how to counteract it,
  • How to incorporate trauma-informed approaches to working with fat clients, and
  • Identifying specific DO’s and DON’Ts for how to show up for you clients.

There will be 30 minutes for a Q&A.

Participants will be sent a video recording and resource document post-workshop.
