Negative body image can adversely affect a person`s self-esteem which, in turn, impacts on other aspects of his or her life, from school and work performance to daily interaction with friends and colleagues. The negative consequences cut across all key areas of living, including health, psychosocial wellbeing, education and vocational functioning as well as contributing to social exclusion. These negative consequences are recognized as formidable obstacles and therefore the EU highly encourage national governments to address these issues.
The aims of the project and target group
All of these facts bring the Mirror, Mirror project into focus: with its aim of developing a training package that will increase the awareness, knowledge for teachers about the potential consequences of negative body image. This will then lead to a change of practice that can result in lowering dropout rates and increasing completion rates of VET students in partner countries that can be a consequence of negative body image.
