Description

This workshop facilitated by Youth Scotland will explore the issue of body image and the impact it can have on young people.

Learning Outcomes;

  • Increased knowledge & understanding of the issues young people face

  • How unattainable these standards can be for much of the population

  • Explore positive and negative coping strategies (including eating disorders and self-harm)
