Event description

Description

Strathcona would like to invite Year 7 and Year 8 students and their Mums to a special screening of Embrace: The Documentary.

Embrace is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image. It tells the story of Taryn Brumfitt’s journey from body loather to body lover - an Australian wife and mother who embarks on an international crusade to change the way we think and feel about our bodies. This powerful documentary uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future.

The screening will take place on Tuesday 31st October at 7pm in the Year 10 Centre, Canterbury Campus. Due to the nature of the content in the film, girls must be accompanied by an adult, ideally their Mum or special female guest.

After the screening of Embrace, students and Mums will hear from guest speaker Dr Siân McLean who is a lecturer in Psychology at Victoria University. Dr McLean’s research focuses on sociocultural and individual factors that contribute to body dissatisfaction in children, adolescents, and adults. She is very interested in researching the effects of social media on body image and the role of media literacy in protecting against the negative effects of exposure to appearance ideal images on body dissatisfaction. Dr McLean is also highly experienced in school-based prevention and evaluation of programs to improve body wellbeing.

Come and join us to raise awareness and be part of the conversation.

We hope to see you on the night!
