Many 2SLGBTQIA+ who live with eating disorders experience barriers to treatment and feel their voices are not heard within health and social support systems. The proposed workshop will consist of 1) film screenings, and 2) community discourse and discussion facilitated through community engagement toolkits. Through these outreach activities, we aim to provide space to stimulate conversations that will bring awareness, and to challenge existing knowledge about eating disorders and the people who live with them.
After this session, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate their practices in relation to 2SLGBTQIA+ safety
- Formulate ways in which to their practices can consider 2SLGBTQIA+ concerns, particularly in the field of eating disorders
- Critique cis- and heteronormative assumptions within dietetics, particularly in the field of eating disorders
This session was pre-recorded for the National DC Conference 2022.
