Participants reinforce their understanding of the Image Myth, why it’s impossible, and why it’s not worth trying to look like it and practise sharing the message with a friend.
Sheet 2.2- one per participant
GIve our Sheet 2.2
Between now and the next session, your challenge is to write a note to a real friend in your life. The note should encourage her or him not to try to look like the Image Myth. In your letter, explain:
Why you think trying to look like the Image Myth has lots of downsides.
Why you think looking like the Image Myth is impossible – no-one can look like this!
What your friend could say or do to fight the pressure to look like the Image Myth.
Remember to focus on the message, and not talk about the way your friend looks. Remember, your goal is to help your friend feel free to be themselves!
Check everyone understands what they need to do. Ask participants to bring their note along to the next session.
