Abstract

This article presents an empirical study on the impact of setting up an educational-aesthetic workshop for adolescent girls in a medical oncology department on their body images. This qualitative study consists of organizing four educational-aesthetic intervention sessions with two cases chosen according to inclusion criteria. In this article, we will first define the key concepts which are body image, cancer, adolescence and educational aesthetics. Then, we will highlight the working methodology, the techniques for collecting information as well as the process of analyzing the data collected before and after the educative-aesthetic mediation procedure. Finally, we will present the results obtained during the empirical phase.
