This workshop is for parents whose children are struggling with eating and body confidence issues.
The workshop introduces a new way of thinking about food that explores how food and other factors, impact the bigger picture of well-being. This expanded perspective can help you open up discussion about food and weight concerns with young people who are preoccupied with what they eat – or don’t eat. You’ll learn how shifting the focus in conversation can also help address common related issues such as the drive for perfectionism and the strong need for control and certainty.
Find out how to respond to comments on body dissatisfaction or healthy eating in ways that support young people to feel at ease around food and at home in their bodies.
Teaching is participatory with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
Cost: £125 standard place; £75 student rate – limited spaces.
