Over five 45-60 minute sessions, through class discussions, small-group activities, engaging videos and activity worksheets, the workshop covers:
• Unrealistic appearance ideals
• The impact of social media, celebrity culture and advertising
• How to reduce appearance-focused conversations and comparisons
• Body activism and positive behaviour change
Research shows that students who attend the five session workshops have improved body image, higher self-esteem and feel more confident participating in social and academic activities.
If you don’t have time to run five sessions, we have session teaching resources that cover the topics in less depth. However, we strongly recommend you deliver the five sessions where possible, as the deeper student engagement has a greater and longer-lasting impact on building positive confidence and self-esteem.
