Introduction to Body Confidence

The Body Confidence workshop is suitable for any adults in regular contact with young people who experience issues with body confidence. We know that low body confidence is damaging people’s lives. It affects everyone – all ages, both sexes – and starts young. It impacts people’s physical and mental health and holds them back in life, stopping them from achieving all that they could. This workshop looks at the importance of body confidence and the negative impact a poor image can have on a young person’s learning.

 

Course Summary

 

Delivered by clinical professionals, this two hour workshop explores the links between body confidence, self-esteem and learning. Delegates will understand the importance of giving children and young people a body confident start to life and learn how to talk to young people to prioritise healthy living and general well-being over appearance. Delegates will take with them practical strategies to support and talk to young people with body confidence issues and leave with a better understanding of the role of their setting in building body confidence.

 

This course also forms part of our three day Mental Health Champions Train the Trainer programme.
