Body Image Group Series
Absolutely AMAZING resource by Canada’s Western Health. My go-to guide when it comes to body image groups. 107 pages of activities, psychoeducation materials, and examples to discuss. This may qualify for a splurge to print in color and stuck in paper-protector sheets in the 3-ring binder. Can’t praise it enough. Adaptable to all ages honestly.
Topic: Body Image, Self Esteem
Supplies Needed: Depends on Activity Chosen- Mostly Written Work
Prep Time: No Prep for many options
