Bodies. Truth. Care. Justice.

Speaking & Teaching


Perspective-shifting presentations

I’ve spoken internationally about weight stigma, Health At Every Size ®, challenging mainstream paradigms, and building connections that are movement building and community-changing.

I blend humor, and meaningful stories with extensive research, and practical takeaways. I love to breathe a sense of freshness into the ways we relate with our bodies and food.

“Carmen Cool is my go-to voice, consultant, and educator in all things anti-fat bias and weight stigma in contemporary psychotherapy.”

“Carmen’s work has been at the forefront in our field in making visible how diet culture and healthism creates body based oppression in people’s lives. Carmen also embodies her own beliefs in the work she does, and I have always found her to be encouraging, creative, authentic, and a creator of possibilities in helping clinicians and clients move toward a body liberation focus.”

Popular Presentations


“Carmen Cool has that rare ability as a presenter to share so fully and authentically with the audience...”

“...that participants are transported to a place of possibility and a deeper awareness of themselves in the process. Carmen interacts with workshop participants in the same way she interacts with the people with whom she works—with deep respect, openness, and the ability to truly see others in their fullness and wholeness.”
