The relationship between body image and mental health is an important and complicated one. Social media and reality television have compounded the unequal impact across society. This seminar will explore how body image can affect different communities.
Presentations will explore key body images for children and young people, students and the relationship between whiteness and race equality and body image.
We will also see presentations that focus on what can be done to affect positive change. This will include the development of online learning materials and a review of some of the policy initiatives that have been developed to establish effective public mental health approaches to body image.
The wikiVBP Reference Library aims to provide a focused resource of literature and other materials supporting training, research and policy developments in values-based practice.
