These struggles are universal regardless of current weight and gender.

Ages 13-17 years. Whether your child has an eating disorder, is a member of the LGBTQ+ population, or could in any way benefit from psychoeducation and art prompts focused on exploring current perceptions of body image, as well as beginning to develop healthier body image, this is the class for them!
