TELL (Tokyo English Life Line) provides an Exceptional Parenting Program (EPP) workshop series each school year which support global parents on a wide-range of topics. The next program on Tuesday, February 23rd (10:00 – 12:00) is about Understanding and Addressing Adolescent Body Image Issues and Eating Disorders
I have attended two EPP programs this year and found both incredibly helpful. The Exceptional Parenting Program, which runs from October to May, features six or more presentations by English speakers from a variety of disciplines and takes place at in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo. The workshops are centered on providing insightful, practical information to increase awareness and understanding of various issues associated with raising and educating a child with learning differences/diverse needs. The workshops are free of charge, but donations are highly appreciated to support future EPP workshops.
TELL Understanding and Addressing Adolescent Body Image Issues and Eating Disorders
This workshop will address the facts and myths of eating disorders, and help parents and educators identify signs of young persons at risk of developing a serious illness. The workshop will also include a discussion of what can be done at school and at home to prevent eating issues from taking over a young person’s mind and body, and promote a healthy relationship with food and their bodies.
TELL Counseling is a supporter of US National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAwareness Week): Feb 21-27, 2016.
The program is free, but a 1,000 yen donation is suggested. Also best to RSVP to Jill Joroff at firstname.lastname@example.org
