About the Workshop

Donna Fish

According to the Centers for Disease Control, one out of every five school-age children and young people is obese. Almost half of children between first and third grades want to be thinner. Half of 9-to-10-year-old girls are dieting. Unsurprisingly, almost 90 percent of adult females has disordered eating. Yet there exists little information to help families concerned with eating problems.

This workshop, led by Donna Fish, LCSW-R (bio), will look at feeding children and teens through a cognitive, attitudinal, behavioral, and nutritional lens. It will focus on giving participants the skills to help individuals, families, teachers, and administrators develop programs and work with clients directly to prevent and/or cure eating problems.
