Body image for athletes and artists is influenced by so many factors; from the environment to film study and social media. So, how do we make sense of it all? To help unpack this topic, I invited expert Kristen Mackel, LCSW. Throughout our conversation, Kristen provides the perfect balance of education and practical strategies. She outlines the differences between body checking and body dysmorphia, explains the potential downside to the “self-love” movement and so much more.
