Be Their Valentine: Fostering Self-Love in Youth of all Sizes
81% of ten year olds are afraid of becoming fat. For youth already in larger bodies, this can lead to a damaging relationship to themselves and their bodies that sets them up for a lifetime of body dissatisfaction, a poor relationship to food, and potentially disordered eating or eating disorders. However, there are things we can do to combat this narrative and set kids up with tools that can help them cultivate a positive self-worth. By incorporating a HAES (health at every size) approach and encouraging mindful eating, we can help set them up to succeed in challenging this damaging narrative and foster self-love.

Join ANAD and Brittni Bowie LPC, NCC of Rogers Behavioral Health for this important discussion.
After this presentation, attendees will be able to:

Explain the importance of self love in positive childhood development

Recognize that being in a larger body is not a moral failing, and understand the damage that perception does to young people

List tangible approaches and steps they can take to foster a positive body image in youth

Understand the benefits of mindful eating and taking a HAES (health at every size) informed approach
