Anti-Fat Implicit Bias training for healthcare providers

Beyond Bodies in the Room: Addressing Anti-Fat Implicit bias in Clinical Work

Dr. Catharine Devlin and Dr. Andrea Seefeldt specialize in treating eating disorders – within a Heath at Every Size (HAES) framework – and are committed to their mission of providing size-inclusive care. With a goal of improving access to and quality care, they have been focusing on promoting size-inclusivity among their peers. As such, they have developed this Anti-Fat Implicit Bias Training to educate other health and mental health professions about anti-fat implicit bias and help providers learn to mitigate the effects of these biases on the clients and patients in their care.
