How to Let Go of Your Struggle With Body Image
Featured Presenter: Emily Sandoz, PhD
~ CED invites you to attend our FREE annual Fall Community Event ~
In her upcoming book, Living with Your Body and Other Things You Hate, Emily Sandoz, Ph.D. offers a unique approach to addressing struggles with body image and she will share these lessons and strategies with the Baltimore community on November 17th, 2013. Dr. Sandoz discusses body image from an Acceptance & Commitment Therapy perspective, acknowledging that painful thoughts and beliefs about yourself will arise from time to time, and that what is really important is accepting these distressing thoughts without allowing them to dominate your life. In her book she urges individuals to find a purpose in life that is more important than the pain they may feel about their appearance. During her presentation she will provide truthful and powerful resources to help individuals towards that goal and along the path towards body acceptance.
