Freeing the
Body Narrative

Use narrative approaches to help people reclaim Body Trust

9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (PACIFIC TIME)

Our expertise is not the medicine that is needed. Our attention to lived experience, story, bodies, and inherent wisdom needs honing.

Do you know your body story?

What have you done, believed, and performed to help your body survive in the world?

Body stories are missing.
Body stories are essential.
Body stories need reclamation.

Learn a process designed for clinicians, educators, teachers, and guides that allows people to reclaim narratives that may otherwise be lost to diet culture, assimilatory ideas, the dominant gaze, and fear.

9am to 3:30pm Pacific Time

CDR & NASW CEUs available

Recordings will be available for 30 days after the live workshop. Live attendance required for CEUs.

Freeing the Body Narrative is a two-day, workshop for helping professionals that introduces a counter-cultural healing paradigm that places lived experience and story at the center. This is a trauma- and justice-informed approach to healing body shame and distrust.

You will learn

Developmental theories of embodiment.

How to unpack the dominant weight paradigm and discuss weight-inclusive models of care.

How to use narrative approaches to help people reclaim Body Trust.

A Body Trust approach to healing.

How to explore, uncover and listen to body stories.

The power of presence.

How to develop a liberatory lens for body-centered work.

We can no longer talk about body image without complexity.


We need stories of survival and disruption to heal.

The stories of size, weight, and health often reinforce body blame and an endless body project, making body acceptance and liberation feel like an impossibility.

Restorying, with awareness of cultural and systemic harms, welcomes truth and places the problem focus where it belongs: outside of our bodies.
