Self Image and Acceptance following Bariatric Surgery

Who is looking back at you in the mirror? Although weight-loss success can be exciting, your body is constantly changing – and so is your self-view. Sometimes it can be difficult to look beyond your physical changes and see the person who lies underneath.

Renowned psychologists Paul B. Davidson, PhD; and Rachel Goldman, PhD, FTOS, explain why this happens and help you navigate emotional changes after bariatric surgery. Not sure if you’ll ever learn to accept your new self? This proactive session will help you develop strategies for coming to appreciate, and love, your journey AND your body… every step of the way.
