Over the years
The WTCI has been sought as a presenter to offer
lectures, talks, keynote addresses, panels, workshops,
etc. on the various aspects of women and their
relationships to food and their bodies. In the field of
published work our faculty’s contributions have been
extensive and well received by many disciplines. Whenever
we interface with the public and professional
communities, we draw on the 30-plus years of clinical
experience shared by our faculty and Board. Now, are in
the process of extending our audience even further by
pooling that broad base of knowledge and expertise into a
body/compendium of knowledge, which can be effectively
shared, with a myriad of audiences, by a variety of our
members, and in a format and manner consistent with the
digital tools available to today’s 21st
participants. More than ever, and in an increasingly
globalized society, our role must broaden further to help
others recognize the cultural mirror and its effect on
girls development; disordered eating as both symptom and
protest of cultural toxicity; the exportation of the
idealized western female body and the globalization of
self-harm; feminist efforts to create a critique and a
wedge in which to find acceptance and breathing room;
clinical responses and feminist oriented psychoanalytic
relational practice. To be effective, this information
can be disseminated and interaction initiated by the
skilled and knowledgeable members of The WTCI.
The goal of our grassroots project Endangered Species: Preserving the Female Body, is to establish an all-embracing presentation capable of being divided into separable sections, content specific, to varying audiences including college, high school and elementary school students, parents, clinical facilities, community groups, social service agencies, girls clubs, etc.
Our faculty is developing the main structure of our presentation while covering the breadth of work on the body, body image and self-worth that The WTCI has explored and formulated over many years. With your help we would like to move to the next phase by synthesizing this data and acquiring the hardware and software necessary to translate this body of material into a digital format. This will allow us to author a flexible, modular power point presentation capable of modification through selecting appropriate components and information tailored to each audience, giving us the tools to reach out to a much larger and wider audience.
