Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Women in Midlife: How are We Doing? A DMT Perspective.

with Marybeth Weinstock, PhD, BC-DMT

Registration closes August 5th

Brief Description:

In this webinar, we will define terms and review epidemiology of eating disorders for women in midlife.  We will explore the challenges of body image in aging women confronted by messages that are unavoidable, looking back on the literature to discuss how we are currently faring.  As aging dancers, we have many existential challenges to face which can add poignancy to our work.  We will explore the responsibility of DMT's to remain conscious of our personal attitudes and assess how we represent and reflect body/mind health in our work with our clients, patients, and students, and also with our colleagues across professions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to name diagnostic categories of eating disorders
  • Participants will be more fluent in epidemiology of eating disorders in women in midlife
  • Participants will accrue skills in working with women and body image
  • Participants will attain skills in assessing their current relationship with body image
