The Body Myth – Raising Body Positive Teens ft. Signe Darpinian

Brooke Warner

Signe Darpinian joins the Body Myth for a conversation about catching changes in behavior before they become eating full blown eating disorders, how body image is contextual, the social media-parent-peer effect on teens, helping kids become critical viewers of the media, and treating our bodies with respect even when we don’t like them very much.


Signe Darpinian is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Eating Disorders Specialist, and host of Therapy Rocks! a personal growth podcast. She is also the co-author of No Weigh! A Teen’s Guide to Positive Body Image, Food, and Emotional Wisdom as well as the forthcoming book How to Raise Body Positive Teens: A Parent’s Guide to Diet-Free Living, Exercise and Body Image, both with Jessica Kingsley Publishers in London. Signe provides tele-health therapy services in the state of California.
