Learning the Language of Body Acceptance

  • Journeys Counseling Center 6515 S. Rural Road, Suite 101 Tempe, AZ 85283 USA (map)

Building Blocks are educational classes for adults (18+) looking for practical ways to create positive change in every area of life. A licensed therapist will present the latest research on a given topic and will provide participants with different skills and techniques that can be easily integrated into everyday life. Each group has room for 8-10 adults. Coffee, tea, and snacks provided. 

Join Vanessa Van Dyke, LPC, as she creates a space for women to start the year off differently!  This special building block will be 3 hours long versus the normal 2.

  •  Name the body shame that so easily entangles women's sense of themselves.

  •  Confront the myths surrounding weight, size, and health.

  •  Engage a new conversation that separates weight and size from worthiness and beauty.

  •  Explore what body acceptance can look like regardless of weight and size.

  •  Create space for each participant to give expression to her own journey with weight, body image, and the impacts of culture on her sense of self.
