The book “What does body shaming mean?” is now available on our website in all partners’ languages
This book was produced as part of the “Body Shining” Erasmus plus project, which aims to offer youth workers and young people from different cultural/social backgrounds to raise awareness about the act of body shaming, enabling them to recognize, identify and prevent body shaming.
The book is based on stories – “incidents” – narrated by young people and our joint analysis of these incidents. It is divided into five chapters reflecting the different topics discussed in depth by the partners during the workshops held.
This book is useful for youth workers because it can serve to gain vocabulary used by young people; gain a better capacity to discuss concepts of body shaming and self-esteem and acquire the capacity to connect concepts and discussions to everyday professional challenges.
Finally, this book can be transferred to more formal education settings such as schools where teachers can also benefit from the book for raising awareness about body shaming and preventing it.
