Since the inception of eating disorder treatment, Eurocentric methodologies have dominated the field. Black, Indigenous people of color have often shared how they are not represented in treatment and, in some cases, experienced further emotional harm due to practitioners overlooking socio-political and identity factors that are undeniably crucial to clients' lived experiences. Dominant eating disorder treatment has given very little room for non-white worldviews and other cultures that could play integral roles in healing and recovery for the majority of the world.
In this talk, we will
- Examine indigenous epistemologies from Turtle Island and Anáhuac for eating disorder coping and healing.
- Learn about colonial gender violence against femmes, transgender women, two-spirits, and women (FTWTSW). More specificly, femme and two-spirit spiritual elimination, loss of power and voice, sexual violence, and genocide.
- Look more closely into the rippling effects of historical trauma on FTWTSW today.
- Learn about the story and representation of Coyolxauhqui and Tlazolteotl and how we can integrate them into our personal mental and eating disorder care.
- Learn about the qualities of matriarchal brilliance and the ways we can uplift and heal the feminine and femme.
This talk is open to all folks who are interested in learning about indigenous epistemologies for mental health healing. We ask for our guests to prioritize giving space for the folks most impacted by the topic during the webinar.
This event is open to all. Mature content.
Log in details will be send in an additional email.
