Finding Authenticity in a Filtered World
Wednesday, January 22, 2020
In our current culture, being consistently inundated with retouched images, filtered social media posts and nutrition myths can often influence our perception of ourselves and our beliefs about the world at large. In this webinar, Tiffany DeVecchis, MEd, Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern, Regional Admissions Team Lead for The Renfrew Center, and Kathryn Argento, MS, RD, LDN, Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist at The Renfrew Center of West Palm Beach, will discuss being authentic in the context of social media and the diet culture.
Participants will examine being their “unfiltered” self and learn the real truth behind the diet industry’s nutrition claims and evaluating how their virtual community supports or jeopardizes recovery.
Note: This is a re-broadcast and not a live presentation. Questions can be submitted during the webinar and will be responded to within 24 hours.
