Sexing the Fat Body: Advanced SAR Part 2
In 2013, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development estimated that by 2020, three-quarters of the US population will be medically classified as “overweight or obese.” Sexuality professionals should be prepared to discuss fat sexuality comfortably, but in a society where 50% of medical professionals believe ‘obesity’ is a disease we must first unpack unconscious anti-fat weight bias. This advanced SAR will lead participants through a dynamic, interactive values clarification process with the goal of developing more comfort, respect, and ability in working with fat populations. Please note: due to the advanced nature of the SAR, it does not meet the SAR requirements for initial certification, all other CE credits apply.

Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify 1 belief of internalized fatphobia; identify 2 incorrect terms for fat people; identify 3 ways fatphobic attitudes have shifted about topics presenter throughout the day; categorize 2 forms of healthism often prescribed by sexuality professionals.
