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.

In 2019, our theme is Social Justice & Communication (new material)

Non Diet Approach is a practice framework built within the Health At Every Size ® paradigm, with a strong social justice foundation. Together, we will 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.

Using various frameworks, we will discuss & explore ways we can more effectively communicate with clients, colleagues & health practitioners so that we feel more grounded and confident in our messaging. Calling upon evidence-based care AND social justice frameworks, we want you to leave feeling like you can have tough conversations from a place of kindness & stability.

Don’t worry if you haven’t integrated Non Diet into every element on your practice (we understand that it takes time, or it may all be very new!) – this workshop will support you to build confidence & work through sticking points.

Bring your questions, and we’ll make sure to allocate time for digging in, as well as networking & enjoying delicious food!
