News Content

School-based interventions for body dissatisfaction have been recommended by the UK All Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image. Having interventions delivered by teachers allows programmes to have wide reach, to have minimal costs and therefore to be sustainable in the long term. Some schools have been relying on programmes that are not evidence based. As well as potentially being a waste of resources, there is concern that these could cause harm.

The research was supported by the NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) Programme and the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and King's College London.
