Join us in this comprehensive course dedicated to fostering a healthier and more positive relationship with your body.
In the introductory module, we'll define body image and explore its significant impact on daily life. We'll then focus on establishing an empathetic connection with clients, diving into the emotional aspects tied to body image and identifying the narratives or 'body stories' that shape our self-perception.
The course will highlight the value of co-regulation, teaching you how to support others in their body image journey. You'll learn to enhance your mindfulness, paying attention to how your surroundings influence your body perception.
Practical exercises like conducting a body scan and intuitive health tracking will be introduced to improve body awareness and acceptance. The course emphasizes the importance of community, encouraging connection over comparison, and provides resources to expand your body image toolkit.
