AUDIENCE: Physical Education and Health teachers, Counselors, Coaches and Administrators

Students in Illinois need Body Confidence!

Adolescents’ body dissatisfaction has reached critical levels in today’s “Kardashian Culture.” The uptick in students’ visual social media — especially Instagram and Snapchat — has created an environment where 75% of female and 50% of male adolescents spend too much time worrying how their bodies appear to others.

Participants in this course will:

  • Learn how body image issues arise for adolescents;
  • Learn how to create a body confident school climate;
  • Be introduced to an evidence-based, HECAT-standard compliant body image curriculum that can be taught in health or advisory classes in middle schools and high schools; and
  • Receive National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) toolkits for teachers and coaches on body image.

Presenter, Denise Hamburger, is a body image facilitator for the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) and The Body Positive. She is an ambassador for National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD). Denise is working with Illinois State Board of Education to help introduce body image curriculum to Illinois schools.

Registration fee includes all workshop materials.
