Description

Our ‘Sizing Up the Media” presentation examines how the images in the media/social media create feelings of negative body image, inadequacy, low self-esteem and how they put us at risk for disordered eating. This presentation also teaches how media messages are constructed, thereby allowing youth to be informed consumers of social media. Using visual aids, encourages viewers to re-evaluate the images presented by the advertising industry. Teaching media literacy skills, which includes the ability to critically evaluate media, helps youth develop resilience against negative messages or the comparison trap. Statistics and eating disorder information are briefly discussed.
