About the workshop:

In Switzerland, about half of the 15 year olds are not satisfied with their body image. Over 20% of girls at this age reported trying to lose weight, as well as 10% of the boys (HBSC 2014). Evidence-based research has demonstrated the importance of the body image to healthy behavior and self-esteem.

To raise healthy children who are self-confident in today’s world, promoting a positive body image and media literacy are important aspects of education.

This 2-hour workshop will explain the relevance of a positive body image, it will give you an insight into your own body image, and it will provide you with tools and exercises to promote a healthy body image with the children you care for.
