Media messages commonly endorse the concept that you need to “love yourself” or work towards body positivity to experience recovery. This webinar will explore concept of body neutrality, which offers a way to conceptualize your body as a way in which you experience life vs. something you need to change, and the benefits of movement in the process. Attendees will learn tips on how to view their body as a resource as well as how mindful and creative movement can help foster healing in recovery.
