Body Trust® Professional Training

Weight-inclusive care should be the norm.

A training designed for professionals to help develop the language, analysis and skills for deeper conversations around bodies, food, weight, and health—both individually and institutionally.

We will do better.

Body Trust Certification

Are you disillusioned with the dominant weight paradigm?

Now’s the time to connect the dots between social justice and the work of healing
—and learn to love your work more than ever.

The world
doesn’t need more
weight loss coaches

It doesn’t need more therapists recommending WW or Noom, teachers and school curriculums colluding with diet culture, organizations upholding anti-fat bias, or fatphobia in eating disorder treatment centers.

The world needs you.

Your brave voice.

Your radical presence.

Your bold advocacy.

Join our community of Body Trust Specialists who are advocating for and/or providing compassionate, weight-inclusive models of care.

Almost everything I have learned about body freedom and body trust – radically accepting my body – I learned from Dana and Hilary.

As a fat black woman society has always told me I am too much, and less than, at the same time.

Body Trust and the folks at Center for Body Trust helped to teach that my body, and being just as I am, is powerful, needed and necessary.”

– Desiree Adaway,
