Workshop for Parents & Teachers
Sunday 4th January 2015

Our first event of 2015 is a workshop for Parents and Teachers, offering simple, effective tools to build self esteem and body confidence in young people.

Hosted at our new home at The Canvas Cafe and Creative venue in Shoreditch, East London, and delivered by the founder of the Body Gossip Education Programme, Natasha Devon, this is the start of a series of Body Gossip workshops for Parents and Teachers in 2015.

Most young people have struggled with a self-esteem or body image issue at some stage in their lives and for some, this has a measurable impact on their potential, health and happiness.

Statistics show that 47% of teenage girls allow body worries to stop them partaking in everyday activities at school like sport, presenting to class or raising their hand. A 2011 study found that in an average British classroom, 3 students were self-harming. And 1 in 10 people in the UK will develop an eating disorder before they reach the age of 25.

That’s why, in 2008, positive body image charity Body Gossip developed what has become their now multi-award winning Education Programme, which aims to equip young people with the tools they need to navigate the modern world with confidence. Today, we also work with parents and teachers to help them develop a ‘high self-esteem environment’ at home and at school.

The Workshop

Hosted by Natasha Devon, founder of the Body Gossip Education Programme and author of Fundamentals: A Guide for Parents and Teachers on Mental Health & Self-Esteem, this workshop will give you simple, effective tools to build resilience in young people.

The modern world can be daunting, not just for young people but for the adults who are trying to guide them through it. By looking at communication and language, the internet and how to engage with the worlds of fashion and beauty, we’ll help you untangle the complex web to help navigate them towards health and happiness.
