Description:
The Dáil na nÓg How we see it: Survey on Young People’s Body Image marks an important milestone in researching one of the key concerns of young people in Ireland. This innovative, peer-led research project set out to gather information about the sorts of things that affect young people’s body image in Ireland today. The research was conceived and designed, and the questionnaire administered by young people from the Dáil na nÓg Council, with the support of the Citizen Participation Unit of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) and a research team from University College Cork. The importance of body image in influencing mental health among teenagers emerged as one of the key recommendations from Dáil na nÓg 2010. In following up on this recommendation, the young people from the Dáil na nÓg Council examined the State of the Nation’s Children: Ireland 2010 report and discovered that there is no publicly reported national data on teenagers’ body image. They decided to develop a survey to ask young people how they perceived their body image. After receiving training in research methods and ethics, the members of the Dáil na nÓg Council administered the Body Image Survey to more than 2,000 young people from all around Ireland at the 2011 Comhairle na nÓg Annual General Meetings (AGMs). In total, 2,156 young people, aged 10-21 years, completed the survey.
