Recent research shows that children as young as seven are struggling with the pressure to look perfect. This along with academic pressure, media pressure and pressure from friends can all impact on how a young person feels about themselves.
In this experiential workshop we will explore why understanding self-esteem can help young people navigate their ways through the difficulties of childhood and adolescence.
We will explore how different situations can impact self-esteem and identify different approaches that can help boost low self-esteem.
The workshop will include case studies, practical exercises and will show how different techniques can improve feelings of self worth.
By the end of the course you will be able to show young people how the pressures of day to day life can have an effect, teach them coping strategies and help them learn how to accept and value themselves for the people they are.
The workshop includes:
