CEs (between 4 and 6) will be available for therapists and dietitians who attend the live event.
Five speakers who hold diverse healing approaches in the treatment of eating disorders from therapy, advocacy to artistic expression will be presenting.
*Collectively, as an organization, we value transparency, social justice, and advancing the field of eating disorders by providing training for practitioners to provide more inclusive care, across genders, ethnicities, socioeconomic levels, body sizes, abilities, and backgrounds.
We have worked together to build your trust in us, which is why we are apologizing and providing an explanation. If you came to this page on December 17, 2021 (or shortly after) and saw the word “overweight” instead of fat in our conference title, we want to acknowledge this incident. More importantly, we want to own and apologize for any harm this caused. Unfortunately, our language was changed when we provided the copy to our web team. We want you to know that there has been a conversation around the importance of not altering copy and more importantly, a conversation around how we operate as an organization that does not align with terms, like “overweight,” which imply that there is a certain type of size an individual should be- a term entrenched in oppressive medical weight stigma.
We understand the implications the use of this word has, especially coming from a fat-positive, weight-inclusive organization. We value your support and trust and by this incident alone, we are further united in the importance of body liberation for all bodies of all sizes and are reminded of how important the upcoming 2022 EDRS Conference is. If you would like to share a comment, experience, or thought, please email Corinne at firstname.lastname@example.org
