Learning Objective: As a result of this presentation, participants will be able to learn about the health at Every Size Movement, identify what intuitive eating is and why both are vital to Eating Disorder recovery as well as to the overall health of the therapist.

Two important movements will be discussed during this presentation: The Health at Every Size movement (HAES) and the All Foods Fit model.  These principles are key to recovery from all eating disorders and body image issues. They are also important concepts for the general public as well and are put into practice in my new book for women and girls, ‘The Body, Beauty, and Bravery Project: a Five Week Study of What’s Really True About Your Body.’  Helping our clients, male and female, understand these concepts will lead them towards respect for themselves and others, a critical awareness by challenging scientific and cultural assumptions, and compassionate self-care.
