Our society places emphasis on body image & wanting to achieve the "ideal body type". Research demonstrates that up to 70% of women and 30% of men feel unhappy with their body.

This group is suitable for adults who:

  • Struggle with body image or self-esteem
  • Compare themselves to others
  • Anxiety related to appearance
  • Relationship with food such as restriction, binge eating, or emotional eating

Group Intentions GROUP INTENTIONS:
  • Discuss factors that contribute to body image
  • Understand misconceptions relating to diet culture and body image
  • Learn how to accept ourselves and heal our relationship with food
  • Cultivate self-acceptance and define 'self love' as it relates to body image, disordered eating, and self confidence
  • Re-define "health" through the lens of the Health-At-Every-Size (HAES) model
Expressive arts help people discover just what forms of expression will be self-regulating, communicate their experiences in reparative ways, imagine restorative narratives, and ultimately support recovery."
