Educate and Empower Your Community
with Ophelia's Place presentations, workshops and trainings
Our staff's reputation as speakers is built on their ability to actively and warmly engage audiences in topics that are often difficult to talk about. We bring a unique multi-disciplinary and effective approach to wellness, body-image, and empowerment.
Through the use of the Body Project curriculum, an evidence-based program sponsored by the National Eating Disorders Association, and a Health at Every Size approach created by Linda Bacon, PhD, Ophelia’s Place prevention and early intervention efforts aim to:
Increase body acceptance and self-esteem
Educate on eating disorder and disordered eating signs and symptoms
Promote access to treatment
Disrupt and reshape cultural norms around food, weight, exercise, health, and beauty ideals

Ophelia's Place Certified Educators
We know the immense need for education and prevention resources, and our answer to that call has been to create a team of volunteers who are dedicated to creating change and spreading awareness. Our 'Ophelia’s Place Certified Educators' create ongoing change within their own circles of influence by completing the NEDA Body Project Training and working with our lead educator for continuing education. This model continues to empower our community to create change, as well as enables us to expand our prevention efforts in a sustainable way.
