For the past 30 years, eating disorders have been represented as a white, middle-class phenomenon. Due to the lack of representation of people of color and indigenous populations with troubled eating, these communities suffer from high rates of undiagnosed conditions, inaccessible treatment and culturally insensitive practices within the eating disorder world/community itself. In this presentation, participants will have the ability to evaluate eating disorders through a social justice lens that centers the experiences of people of color and indigenous descent people. Participants will learn about historical trauma, and the white-thin-cis-hetero industrial complex. Furthermore, the facilitator will explore the legacies of colonialism on self-esteem, body-image, and food.

Limited Seating. Must RSVP by emailing Info@eatingdisorderfoundation.org
