Individualized Professional Seminars

Seminars that provide specialized training for educators and healthcare professionals.

After working in the schools and seeing first­hand the widespread nature of eating and body image issues, as well as the profound impact of these issues on academic and athletic performance, social well­ being, and physical and mental health, we strongly believe in the need for this type of education for all who interact with children and adolescents. As a healthcare professional or educator, your influence is significant; and by having a body-­positive practice, you would have a far­-reaching impact on those you serve.

Principles of these seminars are customized for the profession and are based off of the following:

  • Body Image and its impact on academics, athletics, and social/emotional well-being
  • How to apply the body­-positive lifestyle in your practice or classroom
  • Modeling the practice of listening to your body
  • Modeling the way you talk to yourself and others about your body
  • The definition of "health" and why it matters
  • The importance of specialized training and education for optimal treatment efficacy
  • Social media use and impact for your students and patients
