Description: Adolescents’ body dissatisfaction has reached critical levels in today’s "Kardashian Culture." The increase in the last 10 years of students' visual social media — like Instagram and Snapchat — has created an environment where 70% of girls and 45% of boys dislike their bodies.

Body dissatisfaction affects adolescent mental health. Research links body dissatisfaction to eating disorders, low self-esteem, depression and lack of self-care. It interferes with children’s school performance and hampers kids' ability to reach their potential in other areas of their lives.

Participants in this course will:
Learn how body image issues arise for adolescents
Learn how to create a body confident school environment
Be introduced to an evidence based, HECAT complaint body image curriculum that can be taught in health or advisory classes, in middle school and high school
