Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 5 Episode 49 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here.

P Soupers - I'm continuing my chat with Dr Sarah Pegrum. Sarah is a clinical psychologist, peer reviewed ACT trainer, Curator of the ACT BODY Project and Author of the book - Break the Binds of Weight Stigma. Free Yourself from Body Image Struggles Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

In this episode - we dive into the book - starting with my review and moving on to reflect on how Weight Stigma might show up in the workplace and what we can do about it. Sarah's book and her reflections are so powerful and eye opening. Now - P-Soupers - at times the sound quality isn't perfect - I've tried every which way to enhance the recording for your listening pleasure, including a sound engineer - Soooo just a reminder there is a transcript if you don't catch every word - I don't want you to miss out on her inspirational reflections.

People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun. We're all about Unlocking Workplace Potential with expert perspectives from Contextual Behavioural Science.

Another first for Season 5 is that I'm adding a transcript, wherever possible. There is a caveat - this transcript is largely generated by Artificial Intelligence, I have corrected many errors but I won't have captured them all!
