Self- Esteem & Body Based Harassment Workshops
Our society places great emphasis on physical attributes. Teaching young people to increase their confidence in their unique talents, abilities and interests reduces their reliance on physical appearance as their main measure of self-worth. When adolescents have healthy self-esteem, they feel more positive about their bodies and find it easier to make good decisions for themselves that promote health, including taking better care of the needs of their bodies.
I. Examine the factors which influence self-esteem, including media and societal pressures.
II. Identify and understand the terms body based harassment and body image.
B. Societal Influences
C. Body based harassment, Nutrition and Physical Activity
