Compassion for Ourselves: Addressing weight stigma and body shame during the journey to recovery.

Recovering from eating disorders often requires many different parts including therapy, work with a dietitian, groups, and a recovery community. A piece that often does not get addressed is the experience and trauma of weight stigma and shame around body size and weight. This talk will look at the history and internalization of both, the role they play for those with eating disorders and the necessary self-compassion and care required for recovery.

Guest presenter, Chevese Turner’s dedication to health equity began early in her career when she was part of a team working to ensure cancer patients had ongoing access to critical treatments. Driven by her own struggles and recovery, she founded the Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) in 2008 to address the unmet needs of people with the most prevalent eating disorder and was integral to Binge Eating Disorder (BED) receiving its designation in the Diagnostic & Statistics Manual.



This event will be run virtually through Zoom (details sent with RSVP email confirmation).
