Body Image

Many individuals with or without a diagnosable eating disorder struggle with body image. Body dissatisfaction has become much more prevalent in recent times and is proving to be one of the highest predictors for developing disordered eating. Extreme body image disturbances can include body dysmorphic disorder and severe depression. Oftentimes therapy for people struggling with body image involves the challenging of negative messages    learned from media and peers. Skills are taught to help people stop blaming their bodies and to start recognizing the beliefs and feelings that lead to negative body image.
