Decolonize Diet Culture and Eating Disorder Treatment

Event Date:

March 4, 2023

Event Time:

10:00 am

When we consider eating disorders, there are often narrow ideas of who has eating disorders and consequent whitewashed recommendations for treatment. Much of this association is connected to diet culture. This interactive, three-hour training focuses on creating a deeper understanding of what diet culture is, its historical development, and its intimate relationship with white supremacy. Participants will be encouraged to explore their own relationship with diet culture and examine how this has impacted their personal and professional values systems. Participants will also be given the opportunity to dive into case conceptualizations in which they’ll practice assessment through the lens of decolonization. 

Objectives: 

  • Participants will gain an understanding of diet culture, its intimate relationship with racism, and associated psychological distress. 
  • Participants will build skills in conceptualizing disordered eating cases using an anti-racist lens.

About the Speaker: 

Sara Vivens, (she/her) MA, LCPC, is a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, and anti-oppression advocate. She specializes in using a multicultural lens to explore systematic disenfranchisement and adaptive coping techniques, particularly as present within eating disorders in BIPOC communities. Sara co-founded Ida Lillie Psychotherapy and Wellness, a group practice whose mission is to provide a space of wellness for Black and Brown communities through thoughtful, evidence-based care. She has provided training for schools and organizations to develop spaces for acknowledgment of privilege and power, while also dismantling dynamics that foster inequity. Sara holds her Bachelor’s degree in Human Development Psychology from DePaul University, and a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
