Body Image and Self Esteem Workshop 15/11/19
Brook Education visited Parkside Studio College on Wednesday 30th October to deliver a beneficial workshop to Year 10 students. The session informed students about having a positive body image and self-esteem. Students were informed of the different ways in which a negative body image in young people is influenced by outside factors such as the media, social media and peer pressure. They also learnt ways in which they can overcome this negative image, and turn it into a positive image by changing their perspective of how they see themselves. During the workshop, students participated in group discussions focusing on self-esteem and recognising digital abuse whilst using online based platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat. All participants thoroughly enjoyed the interactive session and established a deeper understanding and confidence of the subjects studied.
