Clinical eating disorders have grave consequences that can be deadly. As professionals, it’s hard to know how to respond effectively when poor body image and disordered eating flourish in the world around us. Explore how to overcome the narrow ideal of body size and beauty popularized on social media and beyond in this 1-hour webinar. In honour of Eating Disorders Awareness Week (February 1-7), we will also discuss the power of embracing a Health at Every Size® perspective and reshaping our own relationship with the complicated landscape and language of food and weight.
