Body Image 101: Helping Your Clients Nurture Better Relationships with Their Bodies

Corinne Dobbas, MS, RD

Do your clients struggle with negative body image? Do you wish you could provide them with tools and in-session counseling techniques to help them foster a more positive body image? Or, at least a less painful relationship with their bodies? In this presentation, Corinne Dobbas, MS, RD, registered dietitian, nutrition therapist and certified intuitive eating counselor, will provide a whole-person approach to working with clients with body image concerns. She will unpack the layers of what body image really means, how you can help your clients assess their concerns and feelings about their bodies and what current research shows about fostering a positive body image. In this presentation Corinne will explore the importance of body image psychoeducation for your clients (and yourself) and demonstrate various exercises designed to help your clients gain more compassionate relationships with their bodies. She will also discuss why changing (shrinking) your body does not always lead to a better body image for the long-term and what does help. Case studies will be shared throughout the presentation to help the information come alive and provide a more comprehensive understanding of clinical application. 

Corinne Dobbas, MS, RD is a registered dietitian, nutrition therapist, and certified intuitive eating counselor with nearly a decade of experience in Marin County, California. She specializes in helping clients break free from the mental, emotional, and physical toll of chronic dieting, various levels of disordered eating, and body image concerns – as well as nutrition and body image healing work in eating disorder recovery. Ultimately, she helps clients nurture a caring and compassionate relationship with food and their bodies through a non-weight focused, non-diet approach.
