FREE PSHE Association-accredited resources regarding body image and self-esteem from Parent Zone and Dove

Parent Zone are working with the Dove Self-Esteem Project to bring its acclaimed PSHE Association-accredited resources to UK schools. FREE in-school teaching resources are available, that have been specially designed to help teachers deliver workshops to pupils, promoting self-esteem and body confidence.

The expert resources for teachers and parents are based on comprehensive research, in collaboration with the Centre For Appearance Research (UWE), and evaluated by body image experts. The school resources are accredited by the PSHE Association. They address key topics including media influence, peer pressure and strategies for promoting body image and self-esteem. Students learn through class discussion, small-group activities, videos and activity worksheets. Schools can deliver a single workshop, or register to access a more in-depth 5-session programme.

Alongside the Dove Self-Esteem Project pages on Parent Zone, the Parent Info website has separate help and information aimed at parents, including a free downloadable 40-page parent guide.
