Fat Studies & Health at Every Size
Date: 9:00am - 3:30pm PST February 1, 2020 Location: Lewis & Clark Graduate School
Lewis & Clark Graduate School
This course explores the interdisciplinary field of scholarship in Fat Studies that aims to debunk weight-centric misconceptions and countering mainstream narratives. Participants will examine fat bias, fat shame and weight-based oppression as a social justice issue that intersects with other systems of oppression.
This course includes an introduction to the paradigm of Health At Every Size (HAES), a weight-neutral approach to health promotion that emphasizes size diversity, intuitive eating, and joyful movement. HAES is also an important paradigm in working with people who experience disordered eating.
This course is part of our Eating Disorders Certificate Program.
