Media & Body Image

Societal pressures on young women to look and act a certain way is increasingly affecting children at younger ages than ever before. In this workshop, you will learn about and discuss the various messages that the media sends to young girls and adolescents about body image and what it means to be a female in the 21st century. Parenting strategies for increasing communication about these messages will also be provided, along with a facilitated deconstruction activity.

Facilitator: Lina Zahreddine, BAH, M.S.W Candidate, and Parent.
