If you work with clients who are fat – and let’s face it, we all do – it is imperative that you learn a fat politic that will guide you as you provide psychotherapy to this group of marginalized folx.

Without interrogating anti-fatness and the role therapists play in upholding it, we risk causing incredible harm to our fat clients, and we are rendered ineffective in our work with them.

By challenging our assumptions and engaging with scholarship, art, organizing and other liberation work by fat creators, we will begin to reimagine the world and more robustly support fat folks in living more embodied lives in it.
