Aaron and Glenys welcome Lisa DuBreuil, LICSW to the podcast to discuss how she works with people who are considering weight loss surgery, or who have already had it. She talks about what the medical community isn't doing well when preparing people for bariatric surgery, the possible long-term consequences, and how the HAES® principles can help in building good self-care after surgery.
Lisa DuBreuil, LICSW is a mom, wife, fat activist, and clinical social worker. Since 2003 she has been a psychotherapist doing individual and group work in an outpatient hospital-based clinic, treating people with co-occurring substance use disorders and eating disorders and more recently people with new-onset SUDs and compulsions following weight loss surgery. She also has a private practice in Salem, MA where she treats people diagnosed with binge eating disorder and people dealing with various problems following weight loss surgery. Lisa helps people live peacefully in their bodies by improving self-care skills and teaching how to navigate our challenging body culture.
