HYP October Workshop - Body Image and Eating Disorders in Youth

About this Event

Body Image and Eating Disorders in Youth

Private Practice - Neathery Thurmond, LCSW-S, CGP

Join HYP for our October workshop! Every day we are bombarded with messages that we need to look a certain way or eat a certain way. Youth are even more vulnerable to this messaging and research indicates teens who engage in moderate dieting are 5x more likely to develop an eating disorder than their peers who do not diet. This presentation will explore how to help encourage body positivity in youth and evaluate the complexities of body image while living in a fatphobic world. A high level overview of eating disorders will be provided as well as steps to take to provide support in healing.

PARKING:

Please see the map below for parking at LifeWorks East. Parking has changed and we ask that attendees park in the designated areas or along Lyons street when attending monthly workshops.
