Eating disorders and unhealthy body images seem to be all around us in today's world, especially with the rapid rise of social media and the seemingly unavoidable consumption of it by children. As school psychologists and mental health professionals, many of us come across children (seemingly at younger and younger ages) who seem to struggle with their body images and start down a path of disordered and unhealthy eating patterns. On today's episode, we are joined by Dr. Janet Tomiyama (Professor of Psychology at UCLA) to discuss how to talk to children about weight. That is, what does that research say about talking to kids about "weight" and how can we best support families in promoting positive and healthy body images and eating habits? Tune in to learn more.About the Guest:  Dr. TomiyamaA. Janet Tomiyama, Ph.D., (you can call her Dr. T) is a professor of Psychology at UCLA, where she also heads up the DIeting, Stress, and Health (DiSH) lab.

Her work has been recognized by early career awards from the Association for Psychological Science, the Society for Behavioral Medicine, and the Society for Health Psychology.
