Body Image
Young people are facing increasing pressures relating to their appearance and although this is not a new phenomenon the growing pressures to conform are now having detrimental effects on children and young people. With the rise in social media and celebrity culture as well as peer pressure young people are taking extreme measures to 'fit in' into society. This paper briefly explains the root causes of body image anxiety and explores ways in which to empower young people to deal with these issues.
