Madeleine Langman, staff psychologist with the Counseling Center, will lead a workshop entitled “Befriending Your Body” noon tomorrow in the David A. Portlock Black Cultural Center.

The interactive workshop will give students a chance to discuss ways in which they can develop a more positive outlook on their bodies.

“We live in a culture that is obsessed with body image,” says Langman. “People are becoming disconnected with their bodies. The negative body image is a widespread norm. The goal of this workshop is to promote positive eating habits and positive images. Hopefully, students will leave the discussion feeling a sense of friendship with their bodies.”

Langman received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Clark University, a master’s in counseling psychology from Lesley College, and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Lehigh University. She had over a decade of experience working in college counseling centers before coming to Lafayette in fall 1999. In addition to conducting individual counseling, Dr. Langman facilitates the Counseling Center’s personal development groups, and coordinates National Depression Screening Day.

The counseling center is planning other events in March that will encourage students to improve their feelings about their bodies.
