Body Image Awareness Week ran from the 1st to the 8th September. It aims to raise awareness of eating disorders, which are a life-threatening illness. It also takes the opportunity to celebrate our bodies – unique, diverse, strong, and beautiful. A range of wonderful resources have been developed to assist with these goals. So what can you do to be part of the conversation?
1) We encourage you to look out for the resources at the Butterfly Foundation #LOVEYOURBODYWEEK #CHANGETHECONVO.
2) Get informed. You can find out more about eating disorders, through the National Eating Disorder Collaboration, including their video explaining what eating disorders are.
3) For further information about eating disorders and their treatment, check out the huge range of resources available for consumers and professionals on the CCI website, including our handouts on “Body Image and Body Dissatisfaction” and “Media and Body Image”.
Stay tuned… Dr Louise Andony and Dr Stephanie Hill from the CCI Eating Disorders program are currently developing a series of self-help treatment modules that will specifically address body image.
