Decolonizing the Perspective of Health & Food Within Mental Health: The Impact on Clinical Care.

CAMFT Course Page

Course Description:
When clients come to us for support with emotional and mental health concerns stemming from issues with their health, body size, weight, and/or relationship with food, how are you approaching the work? Is your framework unbiased and inclusive? As mental health clinicians, it is important for us to do our work to understand the inherent fatphobia and biases that exist within frameworks aimed at addressing issues related to health, body size, weight, food behaviors. Don't miss this webinar to learn how addressing our own biases can inform more inclusive mental health care!
