About the Course:
A common response that arises when social justice is introduced into conversations about eating disorders is that we must stay evidence-based in our approaches. We want to provide care that is based in sound scientific evidence. However, the current research evidence base is limited to those who have been treated for their eating disorders, and too often ignores the perspectives of those who experience barriers. “Evidence-based,” as a term, must necessarily also include clinical knowledge and lived experience. There is significant research, clinical, and lived-experience evidence for the need to consider eating disorders in relation to social factors, including systemic racism, sizeism, ableism, ageism, and more. We know, for instance, that BIPOC (Black/Indigenous/People of color), disabled, LGBTQ+ folks, and those in larger bodies face barriers to diagnosis and treatment that lead to their exclusion from studies that are held up as evidence of effectiveness and also to harm in treatment environments. In this workshop, we will explore a body of evidence that suggests that in addition to “traditional” biopsychosocial work on eating disorders, we must also consider the needs and desires of those who have negative treatment experiences. We bring various types of evidence into conversation with workshop attendees, aiming to foster dialogue about how to evaluate the evidence for trauma-informed, social-justice oriented, intersectional approaches to psychological concerns including eating disorders. Our aim is not to discredit or ignore the work of researcher-clinicians in the field, but rather to build bridges between researchers, clinicians, and advocates who take different approaches to their work, building on the collective desire for supporting people experiencing eating disorders.
This course is based on the book, Social Justice Informed Practice: Demonstrating the Evidence, Discussing Ways to Move Forward created by Andrea LaMarre, BA, MSc., PhD, Chevese Turner, BA, and Kerry Beake, BSc, Post Grad Dip, MSc in 2020.
