About the Event

Body Positivity isn’t just a feel-good movement. For adults, teens, and increasingly, young children, body positivity (or neutrality) paired with weight inclusivity at home, in the medical office, and in the classroom could make drastic and positive difference in the lives of those in larger bodies. In this talk, we will go in-depth, past the warm fuzzies and right into the science of how these philosophies can support your clients, young and mature. There will be practical tips throughout the presentation.

Participants are invited to bring a case study for group discussion, although it’s not possible to guarantee that all will have time to be presented.

Learning Objectives

1. Discuss body positivity: what is body positivity? what is body neutrality?

2. Facilitate interventions by using a holistic and gentle approach, including positive feeding dynamic, child developmental considerations, and alternative/creative work with body image

3. Strategize unconventional approaches highlighting the various attributes of body positivity: senses as well as education regarding culture, location, vocabulary, social media exposure and creative outlets such as food art, photography, dance, music, and more

4. Utilize creativity in supporting evidence-based research regarding responsive parenting so that professionals and parents gain confidence in raising healthy children
