Areas of Expertise: Family Interventions around eating, Childhood Obesity, Parental Involvement in eating behaviors, family interventions with health related behaviors, therapy and teaching weight-bias and weight-related behaviors
I currently work with Dr. Keeley Pratt on many projects regarding family-based interventions around health, weight-related behaviors, and weight-related activities. We are also currently piloting a curriculum for Marriage and Family Therapists that, among other things, makes therapists aware of their own weight-bias or weight experiences when working with overweight or obese clients. I would like to help contribute to that knowledge and share ideas within the FIC community.
