Weight Bias: Ethical and Practice Issues in Counseling
Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016
10:00 AM – 01:00 PM
Explore societal weight bias, with a special emphasis on weight bias in counseling and psychological therapy, in this highly interactive program. Quizzes, brief video clips, discussion of concepts, and scenarios for group action planning will be presented. Participants will develop plans for reducing or eliminating weight bias in their practices, and develop ways to encourage public reduction of weight bias. We will focus on weight issues as a diversity issue and deeply explore ethical implications in psychotherapy.
