Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I was thrilled when my colleague at Lazar Middle School asked me if I would speak to all 475 middle school girls for their Girls Empowerment program last Thursday.
This is my passion! Helping young girls develop healthy, positive ways of thinking about themselves now is the key to lifelong self-acceptance and happiness.
I spoke to the girls about how media and culture influence our understanding of “beauty” and shared stories, videos, and images to help shape a healthy body image.
Much of what I presented comes from the body image curriculum I created for the Teen Girls Group we run at Well Being Therapy Center.
I love speaking to big groups, and 475 middle school girls was one of my best audiences yet!
As always, we’re here to help. Call us if you have a question or want to come in to meet with one of our fabulous therapists.
Here’s to your Well Being,
