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.

Body image is one of the main contributors to low self-esteem in mental health and is a struggle for men and women of all ages.
