“I reject any weight loss strategy that doesn’t help a woman love herself more even if she never loses a single pound.”- David Bedrick

In You Can’t Judge a Body by Its Cover, David Bedrick offers seventeen stories of individual women who open the door to their souls: stories of shame and self-love, victimization and empowerment, being small and being big, fear and hope. In his illuminating therapeutic interviews, you’ll witness women discover the secret behind their resistance to diet programs, the beauty of their bodies and hungers, and the redeeming insights of what moves them to reclaim authenticity, power, and grace. Get ready to be inspired. Get ready to see it all differently. Get ready to meet the life-changing secrets held within your body’s rebellion to living in a society that fetishizes thinness and shames authenticity.

The advanced training program is designed for processwork practitioners to work with clients on body image and shame. The program has two parts: three-months of classes and group training on working with shame, body image and sexism, and 6 months of supervision, mentoring and the support of peers. The program is designed to equip participants with the skills and experience they need to to work with different clients as they apply the framework and tools.
