Body Image/Eating Concerns
It’s hard to grow up in our culture without being affected by the many messages we receive about what is considered attractive. Body image is the multifaceted psychological experience involving your perception, imagination, emotions and physical sensations of and about your body. Your body image can profoundly impact the quality of your life.
We encourage the development of a positive body image and healthy living. The Center provides support, consultation, counseling, and group counseling experiences to help students achieve this. We collaborate, when appropriate and with students’ permission, with other resources and services on campus including The Counseling Center and the Student Health Center. For more information, interested students can set up an appointment with a staff member at the Center for Women and Gender.
