A Cultural Strength-Based Approach to Eating Disorder Treatment

Gabriela Hurtado, PhD, Yasmine Mavrakis, RD, LD; Prickly Pear Therapy and Training & Mavrakis Nutrition

  • Cultural strengths that BIPOC hold are often understated, especially in eating disorder treatment. These strengths will be explored.
  • Awareness and integration of cultural strengths in treatment can create opportunities for various paths to healing, while expanding our care models from mere cultural competence to culturally-affirming and responsive care.
  • The presentation will share both therapeutic and nutrition applications to support eating disorder clinicians in this area through the review of relevant literature and case studies.
