The Non-Diet Approach for Dietitians: Melbourne 2019 Workshops

The Non-Diet Approach is a practice framework built within the Health At Every Size ® paradigm, with a strong social justice foundation. Day 1 of the workshop covers the evidence base, philosophical principles and practice framework. On Day 2 we explore social justice both as an idea, and as a practice & how it intersects with Non Diet Approach-based care. Starting off with definition of terms, we’ll dig into some of the nuance & complexity of promoting equity & justice for all bodies in a culture which can make this really tough! We’ll offer not only our own experience, but provide you with a ton of resources you can explore in your own time to more deeply embed these ideas into your practice.
