Associates and founder of (https://www.turningteen.com/). Dr.
Klein will address the challenges many tweens face when it comes to feeling
confident about their bodies because of competing messages in society and in
the media, and she’ll help us open the door for discussions about body image.
We’ll also be stringing up some inspiring bracelets with Robyn Heicklen of
Bracha’s Beads, assisted by her son Daniel (check her out on Instagram

tools and techniques for talking through topics about body image and body

In addition, we will learn about Dignity Grows, a cause TOV is committed to

their mission with TOV.
