After doing the Body image activities (How I see you, Self vs public perception, gender differences)
Facilitate a discussion that includes the following:
- How did it feel to give compliments?
- How did it feel to receive compliments?
- How easy is it to see positive things about yourself?
- Is self-perception and public perception the same thing?
- What is the ‘perfect body’? Where do our perceptions about this come from?
