Bodies Come in All Sizes: The Assessment and Treatment of

 Body Image Disturbances

      Presented by: Nicole Hawkins Ph.D. CEDS

The main goal of this presentation is to educate professionals on how to assess and treat body image disturbances across the weight spectrum. Discussion will focus on factors that contribute to negative body image and how therapists can effectively assess the influence of these factors in regards to the patients they treat. The impact of the media and the diet industry, and how dieting leads to a loss of self-esteem and not necessarily weight will also be addressed. Finally, information will be provided on individual and group assessment techniques for body image disturbances that professionals can use in their daily practices.
