Advancing Best Practice: Introduction to Health At Every Size (HAES)

A HAES approach aims to offer an effective and ethical alternative to the conventional weight-centred approach to eating and health. The HAES practice promotes self-care within a compassion-centred philosophy. The philosophy is also deeply concerned with social justice and brings social determinants of health into view in nutritional wellbeing as well as challenging overt and implicit size bias in and beyond health care.

This HAES_workshop explores the evidence and provides an introduction to HAES practice in the clinic.
