Our Education Programme endeavors to equip young people with a toolkit that they can use to develop into adulthood including the ability to challenge negative thinking, improve self-esteem, embrace body positivity and build resilience. We run a variety of free sessions and workshops both in and outside of the school environment for young people and the professionals who support them.
Workshops for Young People
These workshops are for ages 10-16 years (as well as the potential to deliver to 6th formers and University students) and are pitched accordingly. We deliver specialist workshops through PSHE lessons, whole school health days, assemblies, support groups, community projects and at a variety of events and programmes. Our workshops are usually one hour in length but can be adjusted in accordance to the setting. We make sure to work with the school or organisation to ensure that the workshop is as relevant, inclusive and engaging as possible and are happy to consider bespoke workshops for specific needs or for a group of vulnerable young people.
Our most popular workshop is all about the role external and internal factors play in our developing body image and self-esteem and what we can learn to control and change. We use a range of activities and develop discussion around these topics, then offers practical approaches on how to improve one’s self-esteem, be more body confident and support our friends and peers.
Body Image and The Media
In this workshop we explore the impact of the media, and particularly social media, on young minds and discuss strategies to remain unaffected. This includes activities around positive body image and working to appreciate our body for more than our appearances.
This workshop can also take the opportunity to discuss negative thought processes and thinking styles and equip young people with effective thinking strategies.
Understanding Eating Disorders
This workshop is an introduction to mental health and wellbeing with a focus on eating disorders. provides students with an overview of Eating Disorders by defining the different types of eating disorders, and exploring possible triggers and routes to recovery. The focus then moves to how we can spot the signs of disordered eating or low self-esteem in friends and where to go for help and support. Discussion and group activities ensure the session is interactive and engaging.
