The famous shame researcher, Dr. Brene Brown, talks about "body image" as one of the most prevalent shame triggers for women. Women have a very complex relationship with their bodies. Research shows that more than 80% of women are dissatisfied with their body image. This experiential workshop covers:
- How women developed core beliefs about their bodies
- How to rewrite your core negative beliefs into a new, positive script
- Tools to maintain this new script
Location: 3160 Porter Drive, Palo Alto, Pacific Ocean Conference Room
