Description

Empowering Ourselves / Supporting Our Daughters Who Struggle With Eating and Body Image Problems

Date: Saturday, October 14, 2017
Time: 10am -12;30pm
Location: 26 West 9 Street, Suite 8C, NYC
Instructor: Jody Porter, LCSW

This experiential workshop will explore how mothers can empower themselves to be supportive of daughters who have painful relationships to food and to their bodies. The complex interplay of cultural, psychological and interpersonal forces impacting upon daughters as well as mothers will be examined. Mothers’ relationship to food, and to her own body will be explored. Our conversation will aim to strengthen our ability as mothers, to resist and challenge dominant cultural discourses about food and female embodiment, so that we may more effectively help our daughters to reject body hating thoughts and practices.

She has lectured on the topic of family systems treatment, both of eating problems and addictions. She has conducted presentations about her model for group intervention with mothers of daughters who struggle with eating & embodiment difficulties, to The Women's Therapy Centre Institute, NYC., and The Westchester Chapter of the NY State Society for Clinical Social Work.
