Body Image: Deal With It Because All Bodies Are Great Bodies

Hohn, T.
This very readable Canadian resource is aimed at young adolescents and provides readers with insight into their bodies and the factors that influence body image. It discusses both positive and negative body image through the use of real-life examples and scenarios and tries to dispel myths prevalent in society today. The work provides quizzes to help students see how they view their body, provides do and don’t lists to improve self-esteem and develop respect for their bodies, and sections with current statistical information to support issues being discussed. A section at the end provides further resources, including where to seek help, and information on relevant websites and books.
