Body Image
Write down 5 things that come to mind when you hear the words 'body Image'?
Your body image is how you think and feel about your body. Body image involves your thoughts, perception, imagination and emotions. It does not necessarily reflect what you see in the mirror or what other people see. Poor body image is often linked to dieting, over-exercising, or eating disorders such as anorexia , bulimia and binge eating disorder, and to other mental health issues such as low self-esteem, depression or anxiety.


In two/three paragraphs you are to write a summary of what you just witnessed. Use the following questions to guide your response:

What are your initial thoughts?
Who do you believe to be the bully and victim?
Were Casey's actions justified?
Did the bystanders help or hinder the situation?
What alternative conflict resolution strategies could have been used to nullify the situation?

Has Casey's version of events altered your perception of the situation?
Has Richard's version of events altered your perception of the situation?
Overcoming Body Image Issues
Body image dissatisfaction (or negative body image) happens when a person has negative thoughts and feelings about his or her body.

Negative body image usually involves a difference between how people think they should look (their ideal body) and how they actually look

The image that people have of their body is largely determined by social influences and often these images are incorrect

Body image dissatisfaction doesn’t only concern people’s body size and shape, but also skin colour, strength, fitness, facial characteristics, physical religious characteristics, disabilities and ethnic diversity

Body Image Dissatisfaction
What causes a negative body image?
The Cultural Ideal of Beauty (through the mass media)

Ideas about the ‘ideal body’ have changed throughout history. For example, in the middle ages a plump, voluptuous female body was considered highly attractive, as it symbolised wealth and fertility. The ideal advocated by our current culture is predominately one of thinness for girls and a lean but muscular body for males
These current ideals are largely unrealistic, unattainable and increasingly only achievable through digital enhancement, and are harmful to the physical and psychological wellbeing of many people, adolescents in particular

Personal Characteristics
Some people are more susceptible to negative body image than others—people’s individual qualities can also contribute to body image dissatisfaction. Some of these contributing factors include:
People who want everything to be perfect
Highly impressionable people
People who have a tendency to compare themselves to others
People who tend to view themselves as how they think other people view them
A person’s age (adolescents are more likely to be affected by their body image)

Social Messages
The social messages given to people by their parents, siblings, friends, peers, and teachers can have a significant negative or positive impact on a person’s body image. In particular, parents can have a large impact on their child’s body image, and can either protect against or add to body dissatisfaction
Modelling the negative body image behaviours of your family and friends (e.g. unhealthy dieting, constantly talking about their flaws) can also negatively affect your body image.
