Upcoming Workshop: Re-story (and Restore) Your Relationship with Your Body, Food & Exercise

December 12th, 2013 by Rebecca
Tired of shameful eating, yo yo dieting, feeling bad about your body, and/or guilting yourself into exercising only to hate the experience? Then this 4-week workshop offered as part of Healthy PSU’s Wellness Wednesday Workshops is for you! Start off the new year with a new and restored relationship with your body, food and exercise!
Offered on 4 consecutive Wednesdays, February 5-26, from 12:10-1 pm in Frost Commons. Rebecca Busanich, PhD, will be teaching individuals ways to understand and explore cultural and personal narratives around the body, food and exercise and how these can have a powerful impact on individuals’ health behaviors and emotional relationships with their bodies, food and exercise. Individuals will be provided with alternative narratives and challenged to revise narratives in ways that will foster positive health outcomes. Come ready to share, learn and transform your health!
If you choose to participate in this workshop, you will also be asked to participate in a study on narrative therapy. Participation in the study is completely voluntary & not required as a part of the workshop.
Participation is free & limited to the first 20 employees. Please email healthy-psu@plymouth.edu to express interest.
