Body image concerns in young children

As children grow up, their bodies can and do rapidly change. Could you identify the red flags of body image concerns in children, and if you could, how might you support a culture of positive body image amongst children and their families?

This webinar will support practitioners in developing an understanding of red flags for body image issues amongst children; the importance of prevention and promotion of positive body image amongst children; and the role of collaboration and appropriate referrals when providing support and care to children experiencing body image concerns, and their families.
