Mainstream weight science is built upon a plethora of assumptions. We now know that many of these assumptions about human body weight and health are flawed. I'll help you learn how to interpret weight-centric research for yourself, bust myths about body weight and health, and I'll present to you weight neutral research and discuss relevant content (including Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, and The Non-Diet Approach). To claim it as professional development see www.UnpackingWeightScience.com.

    Ep 6: The Science of Self Compassion

    Ep 6: The Science of Self Compassion

    In this podcast I take you through the research and academic operationalisation of self compassion, some of its associations and effects on individuals and their self care as well as on health practitioners with compassion fatigue and burnout. I talk about how to weave language that models a self compassionate attitude into your counselling and encounters with others and yourself. The supplementary materials contain exercises shown in experimental studies to induce self compassion. See www.unpackingweightscience.com for details.
