Watch Party – Disordered Eating and Type 2 Diabetes: Navigating Blood Sugars, Medications and Shame
Do you sign up for webinars with the full intention to watch the recordings, only to have them languish in a dark corner of your inbox?
Are you overwhelmed by the years of recordings in our Webinar Library?
Or do you simply need to brush up on your knowledge, even from a learning that you have watched before?
Either way, you are not alone, which is why we have decided to launch Watch Parties!
These Watch Parties will be a dedicated time where we can gather and watch one of the recordings from a past webinar together. There will be additional time at the end blocked off for discussion and peer support. Access to the Watch Parties will be available to all WIDIC members and anyone who has previously registered for the webinar, or purchased the recording. The Watch Parties will not be recorded.
For our first Watch Party, we will be watching Disordered Eating and Type 2 Diabetes: Navigating Blood Sugars, Medications and Shame in observance of Diabetes Awareness Month.
Type 2 Diabetes is an area in healthcare that’s steeped in anti-fat bias and diet culture- clients are often told to lose weight and restrict intake to manage their blood sugars. When working with clients with Type 2 Diabetes and disordered eating it can be difficult to figure out what we can do to help these clients improve their relationship with food since there is often a fear of what that will do to blood sugars. This webinar will help you to learn strategies to work with these clients in a way that improves their relationship with food and strategies to help with blood sugar management that don’t involve restriction.
We will discuss:
- The shame that many clients feel with Type 2 Diabetes and how this affects treatment
- Factors that affect blood glucose levels other than food and movement
- Different medications for diabetes and important considerations for clients taking them
- Nutrition strategies to help bring blood sugars closer to target without restriction
