Are you frustrated by current primary care guidelines that prioritize 'weight management' to achieve health goals, thereby stigmatizing children and adolescents who are in larger bodies? A HAES®-informed approach is recommended to promote development of healthy body image in children and adolescents and can also improve quality of care. HAES® shifts the focus from weight loss to weight neutrality and inclusivity, eating for well-being and a healthy relationship with movement. A trio of three experts will present a multidisciplinary approach that combines medical, psychiatric and nutrition-focused perspectives that allow attendees to learn how to provide care that positively influences healthy body image in their patients.
