I am not a label – Self esteem and body image
Girls are so much more than a label, number or a size. However the media and today’s culture instruct girls on how they should look, behave and feel and girls feel under immense pressure to conform to this unrealistic ideal. This workshop unpacks these messages and finds alternatives to the narrow definition of beauty and exposes media’s tricks and hidden agendas so girls can celebrate being a real girl and not a label.
Empowering and Inspiring.
Let’s be friends – Respectful relationships
Friendships for adolescent girls plays an enormous part of their lives and can be responsible for how a girl feels about herself and whether she fits in or feels accepted. Exclusion, gossip and rumours (on line, face to face or covertly) all have the power to undermine positive connections between girls. This workshop explores what a healthy friendship looks and feels like, how to foster an inclusive culture, what to do when things go wrong and what each girl has to offer another.
A must for schools with friendship issues.
Each of us is unique and special but girls often don’t feel this way. This workshop offers tips and tools, drawn from Positive Psychology, to work towards achieving a sense of Flourishing.
