DESCRIPTION: Today’s explosion of visual social media use--like
Instagram and TikTok--has created an epidemic of body image
problems for young people. Research ties body dissatisfaction to a
host of adolescent mental health problems from eating disorders, to
depression and isolation, to suicidal ideation. Amy’s Gift will share Be
Real’s evidenced-based Body Confident Schools & BodyKind
Curriculum, discuss adolescent body image in 2022, and provide
steps that schools and practitioners can take to create a body
confident environment for all students/children alike.

1. Discuss body image & adolescents in today's world.
2. Identify the steps needed to create a Body Confident School
(and home) environment.
3. Identify the DSM 5 diagnostic criteria for different eating
disorders, how to confidently screen and refer.
4. Give examples of how to best support a person experiencing
an eating disorder.
5. Identify somatic and mindfulness-based therapies for
effectively treating eating disorders and related mental
health concerns.
