Ample + rooted Foundations:
Online eating disorder
training program

We envision a world where we all can inhabit our bodies without shame and experience compassion, pleasure, and embodiment.

Are you ready to be part of the ripple effect to create a more just and equitable world?

Whether or not you seek to specialize in treating eating disorders, it’s likely you’ve had a client in your office struggling with food, exercise and body shame. Eating disorders are prevalent in our society and are a highly fatal mental health diagnosis, second to opioid use disorder. Astonishingly, comprehensive, accurate, and inclusive training and education are minimal. Eating disorders are allowed to fester in society because of anti-fat bias and diet culture. This is a training where social justice and equity are central to the conversation and the needs of marginalized communities are placed at the forefront. Read our commitment to social justice here

This 6-month training program was developed to provide an in-depth study in the treatment of eating disorders, chronic dieting, body shame and related struggles. It was also designed to hold space for providers to explore their own personal journey and countertransference, and to expand their confidence and skill in working with this population. The training is led by Neathery Falchuk, LCSW-S, CGP and rooted in fat-positive, sex-positive, Health at Every Size®, Body Trust®, LGBTQ+ affirming, anti-oppressive and anti-racist frameworks.

"I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to learn from Neathery and the dynamic group of mental health professionals that is my cohort. I am certain that I would not have received the kind of carefully curated, expansive material that I got from this training group anywhere else. It doesn't exist. Neathery has created a space for professionals to grow not only to better support our respective communities, but also to support ourselves. I feel forever changed and this knowledge has lit a match that I am certain will guide my social work practice. Whether you do more private practice or community work, this group has something for you, and I can't wait to share what I've learned with my community."

"Ample and Rooted helped me to feel prepared to work with folks with eating disorders AND helped me in my own fat liberation. This group is a must attend!"

"With a mindful approach and humor, Neathery shares their vast experience and expertise in eating disorders, diet culture, anti-oppression, and social justice in a tangible, authentic way for each participating mental health professional. With each module, I build more confidence in how to assess for and work with eating disorders with clients of all ages. This training also challenges me to self-reflect on my own relationship with food, diet culture, and white supremacy."

“This is a fantastic learning opportunity, especially if you did not get a lot of specialized eating disorder training during grad school or in post-grad jobs. Neathery is a warm, loving teacher who really knows their stuff when it comes to eating disorders. The social justice aspect of the information we are learning have really helped to change my view of the world, and I am applying all this knowledge not only professionally but personally to change my own relationship with food and my body. If you have the chance, you should definitely participate in this training!”

"This training has been an invaluable source for me in my growth as a therapist. It not only gave me concrete language and tools for assessing and treating eating disorders, but provided a theoretical basis for understanding the oppressive framework so many of us have been steeped in growing up, and empowered me further in connecting the dots between therapy as a healing AND liberatory practice."

“This has been an amazing training experience. It came right at the time in my life (personally and professionally) when I needed it the most and had led to me having a beautiful community of like minded professionals to consult with and be on my own body acceptance journey with. Neathery is very knowledgeable about treating eating disorders, Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, and the social justice aspects of this work and they happily share this knowledge with you in ways that are very relatable and nonjudgmental. Neathery's been a great teacher and guide and I would recommend this training group for everyone!”

“This group was a wonderful way to expand my knowledge around food and body that I will be able to use with my clients. Most of my clients at one time or another have experienced pressure for their body to look a certain way and this course helped me to gain insight and resources so I can best help them with these issues. Neathery is super knowledgeable as well as warm and caring so it was a great combo!”

"What a beautiful experience of learning and unlearning. This training has made me feel like a better clinician but has also deepened and enriched my own relationship with body liberation work. Cannot recommend it enough!"

"Ample+Rooted Foundations is exactly the kind of training I have been looking for. As a nutrition therapist and dietitian, it's hard to find communities of people and learning environments that push us to consider how we can be trauma-responsive, anti-oppressive, and support our the humanity of our clients. Neathery's perspectives and inviting energy are very unique. The space they create for pausing and listening is unlike anything I have ever experienced in a group setting. There is an intimacy and vulnerability to it that invites the same in how we view ourselves as clinicians and human beings. There is something so fresh about looking at things we may already know within this context that has really helped me pull new noticings out that have surprised me. The group dynamics, where we get to challenge each other as we get to know each other is exactly how I like to learn. This training is a full sensory experience and essential to my growth as a person and professional. I am extremely grateful!"

"I'm so so grateful to be able to be a part of this training. The training and the professionals in my cohort have helped shape me into the clinician that I am and have greatly contributed to my understanding of what it means to be an embodied therapist. I fiercely believe in my gut, that everyone would greatly benefit from completing Ample + Rooted's training-- the world would be a more compassionate place."
