SCAN Symposium 2017: A Team Approach to Transforming Food and Body Shame

Shame has been identified as a contributing and maintaining factor in disordered eating; however, food and body shame are particularly toxic and negatively impact both mental and physical health throughout the eating disorder recovery process. This workshop will provide an in-depth examination of food and body shame from a nutritional and psychological perspective, incorporating a collaborative team approach using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and principles of shame resilience based on Brene Brown's Connections Curriculum. Attendees will learn and experience practical and effective interventions to transform shame into a healthy relationship with food and body.
