Addressing Weight Stigma in Clinical Practice

Every patient and family you see is inescapably impacted by weight stigma or fat shaming and the damage from this bias can be lethal. In this podcast, Mara and I will discuss this cultural conundrum, help you counterbalance the stigma, and help your patients to shield themselves from weight stigma with healthier attitudes.

Dr. Sarah Nutter joins us today to help us unpack this topic. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Educational Psychology and Leadership Studies at University of Victoria, BC, Canada. She is also a member of EveryBODY Matters, a multidisciplinary partnership of weight bias and obesity stigma researchers engaging in advocacy and outreach
