Body Acceptance Week 2023- Monday

Let's Talk All Things Body Awareness

“Let's Talk: Talking Body” with Fallon Weatherspoon & Maddy McDonough

Let’s Talk is a program for all Northwestern students that offers drop-in consultations (in-person and virtual) with a CAPS staff. The consultation meetings are informal, friendly, and confidential. This week please Join Fallon Weatherspoon (Eating Concerns Coordinator with CAPS) & Campus Dietitian, Maddy McDonough) for support regarding all things Body as we observe National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. If you are having difficulties with food, body image, or in need of support please know that we are here to help.  

Let’s Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling and doesn't constitute mental health treatment, but the Let’s Talk consultants will listen to your specific concerns, offer support, resources, and introduce you to what it’s like to speak to a member of our staff. 

There are many terms around body acceptance and awareness. Let's explain.

Body image is complex. 

Body Positivity (“I love my body”) 
Body Acceptance (“My body is good enough and deserves respect and care”) 
Body Neutrality (“I do not love or hate my body”) 
Body Liberation (“I am more than my body”)
