Weight loss and image-enhancing beauty products send the message that being thinner and more attractive is the key to popularity, happiness, and success. This course will focus on the impact of social media on youth and body image. Specifically, the research and studies showing the negative impact of media consumption for some youth today. Discussion of how Instagram/Snapchat/Tiktok and other media platforms would impact the development of positive self-image (or not) and eating disorders (or not).
