Talking With Your Child About Body Image

It can be confusing to make sense of the all the messages regarding health and weight. With the risk of eating disorders on the one hand and the concerns about childhood obesity on the other, it has never been more important to know how to really help without causing more harm.

Join us for an educational evening with Carmen Cool, MA, LPC. We’ll be discussing “Talking To Your Child About Body Image.” This program is appropriate for parents with children aged 5+. During the evening, we will discuss five cultural myths that directly encourage body image problems, and discover strategies to help young people challenge society’s narrow standards of beauty and health so that they can develop self-care behaviors that will carry them through life.

Sunday, March 13, 6:30 – 8:30 pm, at the Boulder JCC (3800 Kalmia Ave). $8 per person or $12 per couple

REGISTER ONLINE NOW; Walk-ins ok.
