Weight Stigma, Social Justice, and Social Work Ethics


Preferred registration deadline: August 25th

3 CEUs

Nancy Ellis-Ordway, PhD, MSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Private Practice

Weight stigma affects people of all sizes in ways that are personal, cultural, economic and social. As agents of social change, what is our responsibility to recognize and dismantle this dynamic? How do we do so?

Through this workshop, participants will consider when discrimination is considered socially unacceptable and when it is accepted. We will delineate the difference between prejudice, discrimination, and stigma. Values from the NASW Code of Ethics that apply to this issue will be discussed, along with responses that incorporate these values.

Class size is limited to 40.

This class meets the licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in ethics.
