The Body Image Factor at Orchard House

Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair will be presenting The Body Image Factor on March 24 from 7-9PM at Orchard House:

From every direction, today’s girls are bombarded with images of how to look, how to feel, how to act, and how to dress. How, as parents and educators, do we help girls reduce the influence of appearance and become confident in their own unique identities?

Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair addresses these issues provocatively and powerfully. One of the world’s most respected voices regarding the connection for females between body image and identity, Dr. Steiner-Adair engages her audience intellectually, emotionally, and with humor and warmth. She addresses issues of body preoccupation, confidence, and empowerment, and she equips parents with new strategies to help guide their daughters through the crossroads of adolescence.

Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair is one of the leading psychologists and authors in the realm of eating disorders and body image in adolescents. Dr. Steiner-Adair is the Director of Eating Disorders Education and Prevention at the Klarman Eating Disorders Center at McLean Hospital, and a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. She has frequently appeared on television (the Today Show, Good Morning America, the Discovery Channel, PBS, NECN), and in numerous newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, The Jerusalem Post, Vogue, Seventeen, Good Housekeeping, Parenting, Glamour, Self, and Mademoiselle.
