Talking body image with young people

August 12, 2016

A news feature by the BBC (8/8/16) has shone a light on the subject of body image and that eating disorders, dieting and extreme exercise are as much of an issue for boys as it is girls, in the quest for the "perfect body". It highlights the sources of pressure young people are under to look good with influences from friends and social media listed as the top two. 

 

This just reiterates how important it is to have the conversation and educate both boys and girls, about the reality behind advertising and the influences this can have, the outside pressures they may face, and address any of their own concerns, how they feel about their own image and to seek help if needed.
