Are you female and 25 or older?

Are you exhausted by your negative thoughts about your body and aging?

Body dissatisfaction is associated with a number of negative health factors including poorer sleep, increased weight, lower enjoyment of physical activity, and poorer quality of life. Due to experiences of aging such as pregnancy, menopause, parenting, and life stressors, body dissatisfaction in adult women can stem from many layers of complexity.

If you are interested in a four-week group (April 18, April 25, May 2, May 9) designed to improve body image and negative thoughts about aging, please register for this group. The sessions build upon one another so participants are asked to commit to attendance at each session. Space is limited to 15 participants.

About the Speakers:

Kristine Luce Ph.D. and Debra Safer M.D. are co-directors of Stanford Department of Psychiatry’s Adult Eating and Weight Disorders Program. Both are clinicians as well as researchers.
