Description of Presentation:
This presentation discusses and demonstrates a variety of body image interventions to be used in individual and group therapy settings. Six areas of healing will be introduced, including exposures, media literacy, fat acceptance/HAES, underlying issues, activism, and positive body image heritage. The interventions and concepts come from a variety of sources, including Anita Johnson, Margo Maine, Lindo Bacon, and the presenter’s own experience. Recent research presented will include studies on social media (Hogue & Mills, 2019 and Mills, et al., 2018) and social comparison (Vimalakanthan, et al., 2018). Interventions presented will use a variety of different approaches to learning, including experiential, cognitive-behavioral, audio-visual, drawing, quizzes, and metaphor.
