Helping Pupils Feel More Body Confident
There is a worrying increase in the amount of children with negative body image issues. Pressure from the media and peers to look a certain way (despite most print images being significantly altered) is creating anxiety and low self-esteem in young people that puts them on the slippery slope to eating disorders, mental health issues and an unhealthy view of themselves.
Many young people have benefited from our personal coaching (and not just girls, boys feel the body image pressures now just as much) to improve their overall body confidence and overcome the issues surrounding pressures they feel. A recent study suggests teachers should deliver classes in body image.
As the leader in kids confidence and empowerment coaching, C.H.A.M.P.S Academy provides a 6 lesson workshop delivered at your school in an interactive and engaging format that encourages pupils to adopt a healthier attitude towards their body image.
“With 1 in 3 teenagers dissatisfied or feeling depressed about their image… let’s change this together.”
Negative body image issues can quickly develop into eating disorders, other health issues, depression and a life-time of obsessing over diet, weight and other people’s opinion that never quite measures up. And not to mention have a direct impact on their school work, friendships and the ability to socially interact and achieve their best.
Let’s Talk Body Image! Workshop
The objective of the 6 lesson workshop is to help pupils challenge pre-conceived ideas about their body image, learn why often what they see is distorted reality and help them develop a healthy attitude towards their maturing body. The workshop creates a positive outcome with accurate associations for pupils to feel more body confident and informed about what they see. [green_tick_1_list width=”100%”]

Workshops can be tailored specifically for groups of boys or girls and can be run to fit around your class schedule (45 or 60 minute duration). Continuous assessment of the group is monitored and regular feedback provided on their progress throughout the 6 lessons. At the end we complete a Workshop Evaluation to review the overall development and improvements.
