Size Matters (Part 1): Queering Our Personal Relationships with Fatness

November 17, 2023 9:00 am - 12:00 pm Central Time Trainer: Porter Green Fee: $75/$60 discounted (We offer a discounted pricing for BIPOC folks, Trans folks, folks with a disability and folks with limited economic resources) CEUs: 3 (Live Oak offers CEUs for social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and psychologists through the Illinois Dept. of Financial and Professional Regulation. Live Oak has partnered with Centered Therapy Chicago to provide CEUs for psychologists.) Location: Zoom

Living in a body is often complex.  Culture, social rules, and the judgment of others play a constant part in shaping our relationship to our bodies. In this workshop, we will work to build a toolbox of skills for building a baseline of body neutrality and towards a positive relationship with the body, whatever its shape or level of function. Through group work, dyad work, and discussion, we will explore our own reactions and connect with tools to support us on our body’s journey.

Goals of Today’s Training:

  • Provide clinicians with accurate information about the relationship between fatness and health.
  • Encourage clinicians to examine their personal biases around body size and health and encourage them to be more flexible in how they view and discuss bodies.
  • Discuss clinical concerns through case discussion and experiential exercises.
