BODY IMAGE FOR WOMEN IN COLLEGE AND BEYOND
"Mirror, Mirror on the Wall" Everywhere we turn, we're barraged by messages telling us how we should look ... and making us feel insecure and unattractive if we aren't just "perfect". Girls are now going on their first diets in first grade. By the time we're college-age, more than half of American women would rather be run over by a truck than be fat, and 67% would rather be mean or stupid. On top of all the other stresses of college, we end up spending so much time and money on diets, exercise equipment, weight loss programs, bigger clothes, smaller clothes, books and magazines that show us how to be perfect! Is there another way to be okay with ourselves just the way we are?
In this empowering training, our body image experts share their insights about why so many of us are so unhappy with our appearance and what we can do about it. You'll learn:
- How family, cultural and media messages create and perpetuate body image problems and unhealthy weight loss efforts
- How to get in touch with and build on your strengths and goals
- The importance of stress management, assertiveness, boundary setting and clear communication
- The difference between body dissatisfaction and body distortion
- How to recognize when there is a problem with eating/weight loss and where to get help for someone you're concerned about
