Body Image and Positivity

These resources may be useful when trying to discuss perceptions of body image with the girls, although feel free to use them with women as well. An honest discussion about body image is important for understanding where these self-critical ideas emanate from and can help us, as mentors, to deconstruct their influence over young women and girls. Emphasising the unrealistic depictions of women within the media is also important as it encourages young girls to recognise unrealistic standards of beauty when they are being promoted. Lastly, conducting these discussions in a group context may be helpful because it allows us to expose how universal these negative self-criticisms are.
