SELF ESTEEM & BODY IMAGE WORKSHOPS

Challenging Appearance Ideals and More

KIP Education’s Self-Esteem & Body Image workshops help young people to reflect on their relationship with their body; celebrate the amazing things their body can do. Encouraging young people to engage in behaviours that are positive and respectful to themselves, their body and also to others.

Young people will learn to become savvy, critical consumers of media. Through discussion, role-play, analysing examples of real advertising, watching videos and completing activities, young people will recognise appearance-related pressures. They will explore how images of people in professional media often misrepresent reality, being altered to sell products or services.

Our programme helps empower students to feel good about a themselves and build resilience. 

Our self-esteem & body image workshops for schools and youth organisations are an opportunity for  young people to show their commitment to promoting body acceptance and celebrating diversity.

Body image is how we FEEL about our appearance. It’s not about how we look…​
