Dr. Amelia Davis is the Medical Director of Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders, a world-class, accredited eating disorder treatment program for women, adolescents and men offering a complete range of care for all stages of recovery.
I am beyond excited to have been given the opportunity to spend the weekend with you all next month! “NEXT MONTH!!!” (yeeeessss, insert fist punch!)
On Saturday morning I will begin the day at 10am with a one hour talk about my story from body loather to body lover. I will go deep, there may be some tears (yours and mine) but I promise there will be laughs too. (most likely at my own expense!)
When I speak I like to create a space that feels safe, a place where we can connect, grow and learn together. I also love interaction, so after my talk I invite you to ask questions, it could be about anything, the Body Image Movement, my body image story, who was my favourite person in Embrace the documentary…anything, ask away! This gives us a great opportunity to get to know each other and build trust before heading into our afternoon workshop.
What can you expect from the workshop? Well to begin, the space will be welcoming, warm and safe, there are no wrong answers in this room! Topics we will dive into include media literacy, social media – who to follow/who to unfollow and why, how to change our language about our bodies and how to tap into perspective and gratitude to access joy, freedom and happiness.
Finally, there will be hugs, plenty of them! I look forward to meeting you all in person, we’re going to create beautiful memories together and we’re definitely going to have FUN!
