Simons Therapy is an official collaborator of the 2019 National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. This year’s theme is Come as You Are, indicating that eating disorder awareness and body acceptance are important areas of conversation for everyone. NEDA invites everyone, whether you have an eating disorder or not, to participate in the conversation surrounding body image, food, and health. Please check out http://www.nedawareness.org/ for ways to get involved.
Most people struggle with body image at least one point in their lives, and many experience disordered eating. Women are at elevated risk of developing negative body image as well as eating disorders. Many women feel pressure to meet exceptionally high standards and expectations. They often strive to “do it all” and wonder how to live a balanced life. Join me at Denver Women’s Recovery to learn about eating disorders and the unique ways they affect women. This presentation will provide CE credit as well.
Do you or your kids ever wonder what eating disorders are? How they develop? How the media contributes to them? Guess, what? Many people ask these questions.

This event is not open to the public. However, please feel free to contact me if you would like to host a similar event for your school or organization.
