The painful reality is that over 90% of women in North America, when asked, report hating their bodies. Because of the connection between hating their bodies, and depression, eating disorders, and shame, ample research has been conducted exploring how this occurs. But, there is surprisingly little known about what to do about it. And, what is the role of spirituality and our relationships to God in all of this? Come hear Hillary McBride speak about how women can change their relationship to their bodies and appearance, and how this relates to their faith and their relationships with others in their lives. Hillary will also be sharing about her new book on this topic, released October 31st, which outlines her research and clinical work in this area.
