HOST: Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Dr.
Have you ever been shamed because of your weight? How did it make you feel? Hurt, sad, angry, isolated? Maybe it made you feel you are unworthy of being loved. Shame can make it hard for you to have relationships with others and can lead to destructive behaviors. How can you deal with these feelings of shame? Psychologist Dr. Connie Stapleton and Caitlyn Scaggs join me today to help you get a better understanding of these feelings and to share proactive answers.
Questions answered in this episode by Dr. Connie and Caitlyn:
What is the actual definition of shame and how is shame different from guilt?
How do these feelings of shame show up in the girls and women you care for?
Is shame connected to obesity and if so, how?
How do you help girls and women in your care overcome shame?
Is shame related to difficulties maintaining weight loss? If so, how?
What do you think about the saying that you can't want healing more for someone than they want it for themselves? Is this true?
