Changing the Culture: Considerations for LGBTQ + Inclusive and Gender Affirming Care for Eating Disorder Treatment Providers

November 15, 2019

The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness and Walden Behavioral Care invite you!

This presentation will provide an overview of the current information available regarding eating disorders in the LGBTQ+ community and discuss best practices for providing care. There will be discussion around how to work towards cultural shifts in various treatment settings, understanding what it means to be an ally, recognizing some common micro and macro aggressions, and the impact of intersecting identities among marginalized populations. A case example of how a treatment center rolled out inclusive care will be highlighted, as will suggestions and resources for helping your clients get connected to recovery and community supports that align with and affirm their identities.
