Every Body is Different: Developing and Modeling a Positive Body Image Workshop

Wed Feb 24, 2021
3:10 pm - 5:00 pm

“The goal of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness) is to shine the spotlight on eating disorders by educating the public, spreading a message of hope, and putting lifesaving resources into the hands of those in need.

This NEDAwareness Week, we invite Every Body to Have a Seat at the Table. In a field where marginalized communities continue to be underrepresented, we welcome conversations on raising awareness, challenging systemic biases, and sharing stories from all backgrounds and experiences.” (National Eating Disorders)

CSM Personal Counselor Gil Perez and the Mental Health Peer Educators are presenting a workshop titled, "Every Body is Different: Developing and Modeling a Positive Body Image" next Wednesday, February 24th from 3:10-5pm, a two-hour, body acceptance workshop delivered in a group format and open to all students to confront unrealistic appearance ideals, develop healthy body image and self-esteem and reduce body dissatisfaction, negative mood, unhealthy dieting and disordered eating.
