Feed Yourself Free: A 6-week Course on Self-Attuned Eating for Liberation Saturdays; 3/12/22 - 4/16/22, 2PM to 3:30PM ET; Online, Live
In a world where marginalized bodies are most vulnerable to the oppression of diet culture, self-attuned eating is an act of resistance. Our relationships to food and body do not develop in a vacuum. This course for the public explores how Western culture disrupts self-attuned care for marginalized bodies as a means of social control. Through intuitive eating and self-attuned eating, we reclaim and rediscover a more authentic relationship to ourselves.
At WTCI, we’ve been a pioneer in teaching and advocating for intuitive eating since 1981. Over the last forty years, we’ve developed an approach to food and body that is anti-diet and firmly rooted in psychological theory, intersectional feminism, anti-racism, gender inclusivity, fat positivity and anti-colonialism.
Alicia Leporati, LMHC is a queer feminist therapist who is body positive, sex-positive, anti-diet and HAES aligned. She strives to create safe spaces for connection and is committed to anti-racist work. She works with clients on topics of eating and body, sex and sexuality, existential concerns, increasing life satisfaction, and emotional well-being. Helping clients increase self-love and push back against harmful white hetero-patriarchal messages are top priorities in her work. Alicia is a graduate of the WTCI training program and has a private practice in Westchester and on the Upper West Side.

Where: OnlineHow has mainstream Psychology been shaped by colonialism? What can we do to change that?
The second seminar on Critical Psychology will address the forms of colonization in mental health in the post-covid era.
We will explore questions such as:
- What is colonization and what does it have to do with mental health?
- What are the current manifestations of colonial thinking in mental health in the post-covid era?
- How has mainstream Psychology been shaped by colonialism and how can we identify and challenge the Western White gaze as the "standard" way of understanding human suffering?
- How can Critical Psychology help us envision a decolonized system that is inclusive and respectful of people's mental health?
These events on Critical Psychology are a monthly feature for our community.

Helí Rafael Morales Ascencio, Ph.D., founder of the Social Foundation of Psychoanalysis in Mexico City, is also a founding member of two other psychoanalysis movements that include The Lacanian Analytical Network and the Psychoanalytic Letter Sculpture. The Social Foundation of Psychoanalysis’ analysts provide care for victims of sexual violence and relatives of the 177,884 missing women in Mexico while the Foundation’s psychoanalytic listening clinics receive people without financial resources or hurt by sexist violence. The work illustrates how intersecting psychotherapy and activism can help survivors of violence and their families.
