body imageIt is always a good time we tackle the issue of negative body image, and the beginning of a school year is as good a time as any to remind ourselves to change the messages we give ourselves and others. BadBodyTalk causes significant damage to individuals, families and communities but Healthy Messages can make a world of difference.

Jill Shaffer, RD, and I are proud to announce our Stop Bad Body Talk: Change The Message campaign was recently published in the well-respected Gurze Salucore Eating Disorders Resource Catalogue.

We have created the Stop BadBodyTalk: Change the Message Facilitator Kit so that you can take an active role in protecting yourself and people in your community from the emotional and physical harm caused by body negativity.

The start of the school year is a great opportunity to plan a helpful workshop. Run your own Stop BadBodyTalk Workshop with this kit.
