Gender Dysphoria and Disordered Eating: Talking with Gender Expansive Clients about Body Image
Copyright :


Disordered eating is an epidemic in the LGBTQ community and gender dysphoria can feel like a hopeless diagnosis. Clients may find themselves in a cyclical trap of changing their body and losing themselves in a fixation around food and/or exercise. In this webinar, we will integrate gender identity, body image, and parts work to help clients navigate life in their bodies.
