BODY LIBERATION FOCUSED SUPPORT GROUP

These past months, in the wake of the pandemic, many have found themselves struggling and/or regressing in behaviors or thought patterns related to compulsive over/under eating, restricting, weight obsession, body hatred and food anxiety. Coupled with quarantine and the pervasive cultural myths about "obesity", health, and weight, this time can be a minefield. 

 

This group provides an opportunity to discuss and support one another within these complicated and varied issues, with an emphasis on Body Justice and Fat Liberation, to educate and move past societal and cultural messaging in an effort to liberate each individual participant.

 

This group provides:

 

  • A safe space to explore societal impacts on group members’ relationship with their bodies, self image and health.

  • A safe space to share individual and collective experience of living in this society; including workplace, dating, family of origin, social media, health systems, etc.

  • A safe space to authentically connect with others around experiences, thoughts, and feelings of living in a thin obsessed, fat phobic culture.

  • Resources and information to learn more about the concepts of Body Justice, Fat Liberation, Health At Every Size, etc.    

  • Sessions are currently on Zoom to protect the health of all participants during COVID.

  • Sessions place each Tuesday from 6:30 - 7:45p.

  • Group is now open to new members who currently live in large and/or marginalized bodies, struggle with being a victim of weight bias, or identify as fat.

  • Cost is $100 per session. Participants will be charged weekly and will receive receipts to submit to insurance companies for reimbursement.
