Reshaping Reality: Middle Schoolers in the Mirror
May 23 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
One event on May 30, 2023 at 3:30 pm
The Reshaping Reality Club at Wilton High School, in collaboration with Eating Disorder Coach Oriana Laflamme, invite you to “Middle Schoolers in the Mirror”, a program at Wilton Library 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, the program aims 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 Laflamme’s expertise and the collective knowledge of the Reshaping Reality Club, the goal is to provide a safe and supportive space for middle school students to learn, grow, and develop healthy relationships with their bodies and selves.
Registration is required for this two-part program and is open for students in Grades 6-8. Register on the Wilton Library’s website.
