Reviews

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.
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.
