Clients are swimming upstream when it comes to positive body image. Hounded with unattainable white western standards about what constitutes an acceptable body, many stop pursuing the life they want. And at the same time, clients can feel shame that they struggle with body positivity and may blame themselves for being stuck. This session will teach you strategies from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help clients accept the body they inhabit and use it to pursue meaningful activities even as they experience distressing thoughts, feelings, and memories.



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
