Fat Acceptance Therapy (F.A.T.):

Fat Acceptance Therapy (F.A.T.): Group support can address the fat woman's unique plight and help raise her self-esteem. It can liberate her from a sense of powerlessness and worthlessness which is continually reinforced, especially if she has been fat since childhood. Her liberation begins with an understanding about why she cannot lose weight. The therapist must be informed about the physiology of adiposity, and appreciate the reality of a fat existence in this society and the damage it wrecks on a client's sense of self. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Women & Therapy Taylor & Francis
