Beyond the Looking Glass: Self-Esteem and Body Image addresses a common dilemma among teens: how to develop a genuine sense of identity in a society where sleek, idealized bodies have become standards to which we believe we must conform. Rita Friedman, author of the book Bodylove, explores ways to fight against the self-consciousness and shame that many young people feel about their bodies. Students discuss how their self-definitions have been influenced through class distinctions, racial barriers, and peer pressure.
