November 9, 2019 - Eating Disorders, Diet and The Gut
Location: Artspace, 140 W. 3rd Street, Loveland, CO 80537
Our nonprofit’s mission is to make anatomy accessible to all through educational workshops. We want everyone to understand their own bodies and their connection to other people, animals and to our Earth.
In this series, “Crucial Connections: Mental Health & Physical Health,” we will discuss these connections with the public by hosting guest speakers, panel discussions, and classes.
A fun hands-on activity will be included at each session, building in clay a part of the human body that has a relationship to each mental health topic.
Increase your awareness of mental health issues that may be affecting your family, neighborhood, and community and gain knowledge to help others!
Learn the symptoms of disordered eating and exercising behaviors, risk factors, treatment and prevention, and how eating disorders harm our bodies.
Discover ways to replace eating disorder thoughts/behaviors with solid nutrition information, nutrition goal setting and appropriate coping and problem-solving behaviors to achieve balance in your life.
Enjoy experiential learning through stress reducing yoga exercises and a hands-on activity in which you will learn about the gut and build the digestive system in clay on a Torziken® Model.
The workshop ends with a woman’s personal story about how a healthy diet helped her healing process, followed by a Q & A session with licensed therapists and sharing of helpful resources and handouts.
