Why Mindful Eating Needs to Promote Weight and Size Inclusivity

October 9, 2018 | Lilia Graue, MD, LMFT

During this webinar, we review the ethical implications of focusing on a person's weight / body size as an outcome or proxy, as well as the importance of checking our own internalized biases. We will talk about the importance of practicing and teaching mindful eating rooted in a weight inclusive paradigm, advocating for social justice and seeking to disrupt weight stigma, honoring the ethics of mindfulness. We will do so from a compassionate stance, realizing that we have all been socialized in a culture that privileges certain discourses and bodies and marginalizes others and exploring ways to dismantle oppression and advocate for body liberation.
