Honoring Our Bodies - Workshop for Women

Presented by: Annie Goldsmith, RD, LDN
Registered Dietitian, The Renfrew Center of Charlotte

Today, more than ever, society and media have a major impact on the way people 
perceive their bodies and what “healthy” means to them. Interest in Health At Every Size (HAES®), a weight-neutral, evidence-based alternative to disease prevention and human wellness, is on the rise as an alternative to the traditional weight loss messages. The Renfrew Center of Charlotte will be offering a workshop on these principles.

In this workshop, attendees will gain an understanding of how:
• HAES offers an alternative approach to health improvement that is weight neutral
• HAES is our best bet at helping without harming, without unintended negative consequences
• HAES offers us a chance to see health within the context of the whole person and the complex factors that affect our wellbeing
• HAES offers us a chance to examine our own biases about weight and body size

Open to alumni, professionals and the community.

Date: Wednesday, April 5, 2017

The Emotional Eating Group provides a safe and supportive environment in which women can explore the emotional, behavioral and interpersonal factors influencing their eating behaviors as well as their feelings, thoughts and beliefs about their bodies. While focusing on the underlying issues of emotional and binge eating, participants gain the skills and confidence to tolerate a range of internal emotional experiences without resorting to the use of eating disorder symptoms. This group also addresses issues related to family, work, relationships, and phase of life struggles so that individuals can explore lifestyle changes that promote recovery.
