Teen Truth LiveBody Image & Self Esteem
TEEN TRUTH LIVE: BODY IMAGE & SELF ESTEEM is an interactive, multi-media experience that incorporates a motivational presentation with a 22-minute film that was created with the help of students. Funded in part by four leading non-profit organizations focused on educating the public about body image issues, TEEN TRUTH: BODY IMAGE & SELF ESTEEM presents a raw look at girls in their quest to be skinnier, boys trying to get bigger and stronger, and the ever growing issue of compulsive eating. Using storytelling, humor, real world examples and audience participation, the speaker educates students about the serious consequences of a negative body image. Issues covered in this presentation include eating disorders, performance enhancing drug use, binge eating, and obesity. This gripping presentation challenges the audience to think more about this secretive issue and find the REAL beauty in themselves and others. A portion of the proceeds of this program will benefit each of the four non-profit organizations featured below.
