Through Thick and Thin: Exploring Body Image and Eating Disorders

Temple Isaiah, 55 Lincoln Street, Lexington

In this informative and honest session sponsored by the Temple Isaiah Mental Health Initiative, we’ll explore body image—how a person perceives his or her physical self and the resulting thoughts and feelings, positive, negative, or both. We’ll also delve into the complex and pervasive issue of eating disorders—serious, life-threatening illnesses that impact millions of people of all ages and genders. Our keynote speaker will be clinical psychologist Jodi Galin, who has worked for 20 years counseling people with eating disorders as well as other mental health issues. In addition, Jamie and Leslie Goldberg and Karen Funkenstein will tell their stories: Jamie will talk about her battle with an eating disorder, and Leslie will speak from the perspective of a parent helping her child through this crisis; Karen will share her failures and successes with an eating disorder that was realized at age 37. Q & A will be moderated by Cynthia Piltch.
Whether you’ve encountered eating disorders in your own life, or are concerned about helping your children develop positive body image, you will gain a lot from this program. The program will be followed by refreshments, at which time resources on body image and eating disorders will be available. Temple Isaiah is fully handicap accessible.
