Why Weight? Science, Stigma, Health, Social Justice ad Ethics: Implications for Social Work Practice

 

Presented by Nancy Ellis-Ordway, PhD, LCSW

6.0 Clock Hours

This course meets the Ethics requirement for licensure renewal.

 

Weight stigma affects people of all sizes in ways that are personal, cultural, economic and social. As agents of social change, what is our responsibility to recognize and dismantle this dynamic? How do we do so? In social work practice, we often encounter clients who are struggling with body image, nutrition and weight concerns. What can we learn from research and clinical experience, and how do we sort truth from marketing? This workshop will address both micro and macro level concerns.
Values from the NASW Code of Ethics that apply to this issue will be discussed, along with responses that incorporate these values.

  

Participants will be able to:

  • Explain the relationship between weight stigma and social justice
  • Articulate the risks of focusing on weight loss and the benefits of questioning accepted assumptions
  • Describe responses that incorporate the values of the NASW Code of Ethics
  • Define the criteria for diagnosable eating disorders as well as disordered eating specify effective treatment approaches
  • Identify cultural influences in the development of disturbances in eating and body image
  • Delineate the relationship among body image, self-esteem and quality of life
