Deepening Our Roots into Body Trust: Helping People Through the Reckoning

The Body Trust Framework is a weight-inclusive and destigmatizing approach to size in clinical practice. Holding up a mirror to what we have been taught to believe about weight and health can be confronting for our clients. In this presentation, Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD will share the healing phases people often encounter as they work to break free from a culture of body perfection, disordered eating and other traumas. The Body Trust Framework supports clinicians and the people they serve by shifting their focus from “body as project” to a liberatory and healing paradigm.
