Body Image and Disordered Eating. Join Raising Resilience for a session focused on prevention that promotes healthy body image for youth. Prevention starts early, so this session is appropriate for all parenting stages, K-12+. Parents will learn about:

>>Misconceptions & Root Causes (who, what, why, etc.)

>>Contributing Factors & Red Flags (biological and social, including how sports and activities contribute)

>>Food Neutrality (creating a body positive environment @ home through language and actions)

*Registrants will also hear from a student and a parent who have both walked this path and are willing to share what they found helpful vs. not helpful.* 

Panelists: Erin Earle, MA, LMHC; Emily Bell, MS, CN; Helen Burke (parent); Lila Schroer (student).

Sign up today and encourage your fellow parents to sign up as well. Our local guest speaker CONNECTIONS CAFE sessions are free. Can you help us keep them that way? Please consider making a donation to help us keep this program going. Let's Raise Resilience together.

This session is made possible in part by: Lorenz and Saez Real Estate Team, Realogics Sotheby's International Real Estate; Puget Sound Energy; Bainbridge Schools Foundation, Carden Country School; West Sound Academy; Be Bold Be Brave; Bainbridge Community Foundation; and Kitsap Community Foundation. 




As we progress through a new program year, we invite you to make a donation to help keep this program going. Your contribution will help us reach more parents with education, resources, and connections that help families thrive. Donations help cover a portion of the cost to produce CONNECTIONS CAFE and bring nationally acclaimed speakers and documentaries. 

When parents feel supported and empowered with the tools they need to build resilience in themselves and their children, our youth can thrive, and our community can grow stronger. THANK YOU!
