As part of our free  'Lunch and Learn' Support Series during the COVID-19 pandemic, we're offering an important discussion on Body Image and Eating Disorders especially as it relates to the LGBTQ+ community.

First Segment:   We will focus on issues that adolescents (including gender variant) face when confronting body image and disordered eating.    Here, you'll gain a better understanding of some of the underlying causes and how parents can help address some of these concerns.

Second Segment:    Here we will discuss eating disorders and body image in the adult LGBTQ+ community - including appearance concerns, gender dysphoria, and menstruation.  We will cover lesbian and bisexual women, gay men, bears, transgender populations, people of color and many more.


Our Facilitator:

 Dr. Laurie Paul  (She/her/hers) is a licensed psychologist specializing in anxiety, depression, OCD, interracial, interfaith and LGBTQIA+ issues, and individual and couples/marital therapy.  She works with teens and adults.
