BeYOUtiful - Supporting Positive Body Image in Children and Youth

About this event

Presented by: Alyssa Fallone and Nathalie Gonsalves—Community Outreach Workers

Did you know – Over 50% of teen girls and 30% of teen boys use unhealthy weight control behaviours such as skipping meals, fasting, smoking cigarettes, vomiting, and taking laxatives?

We live in a world that has an opinion on everything we do – what hairstyle we have, how we should dress, what size we should be. The list is endless. These pressures can impact how we view ourselves and how we interact with the world. As parents and caregivers, how do we help our children navigate these pressures? This webinar provides an introduction to understanding body image. We will explore compliments and criticisms, media impact and cultural differences, as well as techniques to help build confidence and boost self-esteem in children and youth.
