Body Image and Stress
GUEST SPEAKER: While body image problems are widespread among girls and women, this is a wellbeing topic that we rarely talk about. In this interview, Body Image Coach, Jessi Kneeland, speaks to the following issues:
- Why are body confidence issues so widespread among girls and women?
- How can body image issues be more subtle and insidious than just the obvious manifestations (anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphia)?
- How can experiencing the stress of personal trauma relate to understanding and resolving body confidence issues?
