Introductory Video Lessons
I’ve produced these with healthcare practitioners in mind and so I assume some familiarity with scientific (biomedical) thinking. However, you don’t need any specialist knowledge in the field to follow the ideas.

The Well Now Untangling Table
Making the shift from weight-centric thinking to a health-justice approach can be daunting. You recognise the ethical imperative for change, but now what? After all, clients are typically expecting us to talk about BMI and lifestyle. How can we bring in social factors, compassion, and equity? In this video I show how a simple table opens up new conversations. It supports you as you help clients tease out how BMI, eating, activity, bias, shame, and social injustice interact in shaping personal and social wellbeing and values.
Understanding Diet Research and Science for Health-Justice
Research studies generate data and it’s the role of scientists/healthcare practitioners to interpret this data. In this presentation I introduce data from dieting trials and explain why I think it has been misrepresented. I also highlight the need to question everyday assumptions we make about science so that we do not unintentionally reproduce colonial thinking.
