Wellbeing Series | More Than a Body: Building Your Body Image Resilience with Lexie and Lindsay Kite, PhDs

April 25, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

About the Event:

In this visual presentation, Drs. Lexie and Lindsay Kite will walk the audience through the life-changing pathway to body image resilience, where people can learn to not only identify the objectifying ideals that surround us and the pain and shame that accompanies those ideals, but learn to use that pain as a catalyst to be more — more than a body, more than a collection of parts to be fixed and flaunted, more of what can bring you and the world joy and purpose.

Learning Objectives:

1. Increasing media literacy, or the ability to critically question and deconstruct media messages (including social media) to understand the profit-driven nature of media content and the ways it is engineered to increase body anxiety in women.

2. Recognizing and actively resisting self-objectifying thoughts and behaviors.

3. Improving health perceptions to reflect more informed understandings of physical health and the ways it can be measured and achieved.

4. Developing body image resilience by accessing and using strategies to curate your body image environment, redefine health and fitness, rethink your self-help, and reconnect with yourself.
