"How to Foster a Positive Body Image in Teens"
New Canaan Library is partnering with Silver Hill Hospital to observe National Eating Disorders Awareness Week and provide education about eating disorders.
On Wednesday, February 26 from 6-7 PM, Silver Hill Hospital nurse Vicki Hoey, RN will present How To Foster a Positive Body Image in Teens. Sometimes parents and other adults that work with young people forget how important their own words, thoughts and feelings are in the lives of youth. As adults, we must be mindful of our own relationships with our bodies, how we eat, and the potential impact on our youth. Vicki will discuss practical strategies for fostering a positive body image in children and teens.
Vicki will also be available on Monday evening, 2/24, from 5–7pm in the lobby of the library to answer any questions related to eating disorders and other mental illnesses.
Adults and teens welcome. Registration recommended but not required.
