Psychological Flexibility and Self-Care for Women with Lipedema

  • Today, I want to share an excerpt from an interview with Dr. Joanna Dudek, featured in our Lipedema & Keto Worldwide Summit in 2017.
  • Dr. Dudek is a psychologist and nutritionist specializing in contextual behavioral therapies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP).
  • She conducted research on the psychological aspects of living with lipedema as a PhD student at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw, Poland, where she is now an instructor.
  • Additionally, Joanna serves on the Medical Advisory Board for the Lipedema Project.
  • In this excerpt, Dr. Dudek discusses psychological flexibility and how this practice helps women with lipedema lead meaningful lives despite their chronic illness.
  • She also shares small actions women can take to enhance their self-care and self-compassion.
