Social media has many benefits from connection to entertainment; however, it is also full of sneaky messages that can heighten eating disorder urges for those in recovery.

This webinar will review current research studies to understand how social media impacts body image and disordered behaviors. Attendees will discover valuable tips on how to make social media a place of connection and positivity and will also receive a free Social Media Checklist to quickly identify if content is helpful or harmful.
