Held Online

It’s difficult to make peace with your body when living in a culture obsessed with appearance, weight, shape, and size. While many individuals struggle on some level with body acceptance, it is particularly problematic for those in eating disorder recovery to tune into the body’s signals, honor its needs, and resist the urge to try to change it.

Join us as we explore an understanding of how body image develops over time and how methods to try to improve the body often prove, in the long run, to be harmful. Highlighting the large quantity of unscrupulous products and industries in our culture designed to increase profits for the marketers and decrease self-esteem for the consumer, we will address how unhelpful patterns are created and maintained, provide tools to combat the inner critic, and offer practical methods to build a better relationship with your body.
