Here at the National Eating Disorder Information Centre, we are not only mandated to share information about eating disorders.. It is also our responsibility to provide information and resources about body image and food and weight preoccupation. That’s why days like tomorrow are so important to us.

May 6th is International No Diet Day. It is a day for organizations and individuals to push back against the industries and messages that encourage us to engage in dangerous dieting behaviours.

This Month in Outreach

   

This month the NEDIC Outreach and Education team was involved with various presentations across the GTA.  We facilitated a presentation in Peel Region through Peel Children’s Centre for educators, social workers, child and youth workers and youth counsellors. This presentation was on eating disorders, concurrent disorders, what to look for and how to help. We have also facilitated two conference presentations at the Ontario School Counselor’s Association (OSCA) on eating disorder prevention and starting conversations about eating disorders in a province-wide conference for all school counselors in Ontario.

Let's Get Critical!

As an elementary teacher, media literacy and critical literacy skills take a central role in many of the lessons, activities and experiences that I share with my students... teaching not just media literacy and critical literacy, but combining the two into critical media literacy, takes on a role of, dare I type it, critical importance.

Beyond Images, a free, online self-esteem and body image media literacy curriculum, developed by NEDIC, for Grades 4-8.
