Join us for a complimentary continuing education event hosted by The Emily Program. Presented by Jillian Lampert, Ph.D., RD, LD, MPH, FAED
Movies, commercials, magazines, and websites often portray thin people as ideal. Underweight models and photoshopped images are everywhere. Weight loss and image-enhancing beauty products send the message that being thinner and more attractive is the key to popularity, happiness, and success. This course will focus on the impact of social media on youth and body image. We will cover research on the negative impact of media consumption on kids and teens and discuss how media platforms affect self-image and eating disorders.
2:00 PM- 4:00 PM ET
(1:00 PM- 3:00 PM CT)
(11:00 AM- 1:00 PM PT)
Participants will walk away being able to:
-Understand popular social media platforms and specifics of “how” they work/are used.
-Identify risks associated with the consumption of social media in youth.
-Understand warning signs in relation to social media for disordered eating behaviors.
