Secondary Schools: iFigure Resource

Bodywhys have produced a resource specifically for schools to deal with the issues around eating disorders and body image.

The resource, iFigure, is a CD-ROM which aims to address the issue of eating disorders by raising awareness and providing information on the main risk factors associated with eating disorders.

Such risk factors include low self esteem, negative body image, media images and the relationship between our emotions and eating habits.

iFigure is divided into three main modules, along with a separate section with personal stories, through which young people can discover, discuss and learn about the impact of eating disorders and related body image disorders.

Bodywhys would like to thank the Vodafone Ireland Foundation for their support in producing the iFigure resource.
