The Reshaping Reality Club at Wilton High School, in collaboration with Eating Disorder Coach Oriana Laflamme, is excited to announce "Middle Schoolers in the Mirror" a program aimed at educating middle school students about the challenges surrounding body image, eating disorders, and other related issues. Through interactive activities, discussions, videos, and body image exercises, we aim to break down the misconceptions and stigma surrounding these harmful behaviors.
Middle school is a critical time when students begin to face increased social pressure around their appearance. This can result in self-esteem problems, eating disorders, and other damaging health behaviors. During these sessions, students will gain insight into the issues they may encounter, learn how they can support their friends and themselves, and receive guidance from high school students who have faced similar experiences.
With Oriana's expertise and the collective knowledge of the Reshaping Reality Club, we hope to provide a safe and supportive space for middle school students to learn, grow, and develop healthy relationships with their bodies and selves. Join us as we work to reshape reality and promote a more inclusive and body-positive community.
This is a 2-part program. Sessions will be held on 5/23 and 5/30. Registration is required and open for students in Grades 6-8.
