By:
Valerie Rainon McManus


A Look in the Mirror: Freeing Yourself from the Body Image Blues Who is the fairest of them all and what does that mean, anyway? What teen hasn't wished that her body were just a little more, well, perfect? This hands-on workbook shows you how to sift through the powerful messages that society and the media send you about women's bodies and being feminine. Let go of unrealistic standards of perfection and cultivate a positive self-image based on who you are, not how you look! Straight talk about gender stereotypes, the dieting dead-end, eating disorders, what makes a healthy body, and making a difference for other girls. Valerie Rainon McManus, LCSW-C, is a licensed clinical social worker practicing in Maryland. She works in the field of child welfare and advocacy and also has a women-focused therapy practice in Anne Arundel
County, MD.
