Product Description

Review

The book is full of case studies and exercises... The book is aimed at boys and girls aged 10-18, though I think it could be used by slightly younger children (perhaps 8+) with support and guidance. It starts off by helping young people to understand what body image is and why it's important before considering negative body image and the impact a negative body image can have... The activities and case studies are all presented in an accessible and friendly style. The book is beautifully presented and I can imagine a young person being very motivated to complete the activities. Whilst it is designed as a self-help guide to be completed sequentially from beginning to end, I think there is plenty of scope for confident parents and practitioners to cherry pick relevant activities or sections where time is short or where there is need for a rapid and specific focus... therapists, school counsellors, pastoral staff and parents may find that it is a useful addition to the recovery toolbox. -- Pooky Knightsmith In Our Hands blog Katie uses her expert knowledge to help children develop a positive self- image... This book offers useful self-help activities to banish negative thoughts about your body. As a wellbeing mentor, I have found this book to be extraordinarily helpful; it has been used with some of my clients and I have started to recommend it to parents. An invaluable book, all young people should read. Wellbeing Mentor blog

Format: Paperback
This book is authored by Kate Collins-Donnelly who is a practising counsellor and has applied many of the practical aspects of her work to this book to make it possible for young people to access the benefits of cognitive behavioural therapy and understand and change their thoughts about their own bodies. The book is full of case studies and exercises which can either be carried out by an individual or worked through one to one with a trusted adult. Some of the activities would be perfect to adapt for use with a whole class too and I can imagine dipping into the activities throughout the school year to help build body confidence over a series of tutor periods or adapting them for use as part of circle time.

The book is aimed at boys and girls aged 10-18, though I think it could be used by slightly younger children with support and guidance. It starts off by helping young people to understand what body image is and why it’s important before considering negative body image and the impact a negative body image can have. Alongside this, the concept of the ‘body image thief’ – who steals positive body image – is introduced and practical strategies for banishing the thief are explored.

Here is a full list of contents to give you a better idea:

• What is body image?
• Your body image
• You’re not on your own
• How a negative body image develops: introducing the body image vault and the body image thief!
