Dr. T’s Talk at APA 2015!

by Erin

This past Thursday, Dr. T traveled to Toronto to give a talk about the psychological, behavioral, and health consequences of weight stigma at the annual American Psychological Association Convention. Dr. T’s talk covered her “vicious-cycle” model of weight stigma, known as the cyclic obesity/weight-based stigma (COBWEBS) model, as well as results from two recently-published papers about the prevalence of weight stigma among clinicians and about participants’ perceptions of the smell of thin vs. heavy people. Not surprisingly, Dr. T gave a dynamic and engaging talk, not to mention one full of fascinating research!
