Note from Vincci: I want to acknowledge and apologize for my insensitivity in stating that I was making a “quick” land acknowledgement at the start of the presentation. It was not appropriate for me to imply that the land acknowledgement was unimportant. This does not reflect my attitude toward Truth & Reconciliation, and I hope that my comment does not take away from the importance of this work, and from the presentation.
Addressing clients’ body image concerns while staying within scope of practice is a common question amongst dietitians. Using real-world examples from their own work as a non-binary, fat health coach, Vinny Welsby of Fierce Fatty will discuss why body image issues can derail work with food/nutrition, common mistakes to avoid, and practical ways dietitians can support their clients in this area.
