Hopefully, you’ve started noticing some of the flyers around campus for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week this week. This year’s theme is: “I Had No Idea…”
In my role as a CAPS counselor, I talk to many students who feel like they have “no idea” how to balance their desire for a healthy body image (as well as a healthy body!) with the many competing and mixed messages they get from media, peers, family, and other sources. If that sounds like you, or if you’d just like to get a better perspective on your body image issues in general, CAPS would like to invite you to a fun and interactive workshop this Friday. From the facilitator:
“Making Friends with your Body: Developing a Healthy Appetite and Image at UCSC”
Facilitated by Susan J. Gulbe Walsh, Ph.D. and Diana Elwyn, MFT
When: Friday, 2/28, from 12 – 1:30 p.m.
Where: Mural Room at the Health Center
Come join us for a psycho-educational and experiential workshop focused on helping students gain perspective on body image issues. Expressive arts activities, visualizations, journaling, and lost of handouts will assist us in exploring eating and body image issues, as well as develop an understanding of how these issues relate to the culture at UCSC.
All are welcome. For more information or to request disability related accommodations, please call (831) 459-2628.
