Negative is an EU GRUNDTVIG Learning Partnership project with a focus on the psychological health of young people with particular emphasis on negative body image, running from September 2013 to December 2015. The partnership intends to explore the relationship between psychological problems & negative body image and completion rates in adolescents education. The concrete objectives of this project are:

1. To connect the world leading researchers in the field of negative body image/psychological problems of adolescents directly with the European adult education institutions who deal with the students on a day to day basis to enhance their competence and share good practice.

2. To enhance school leader's competence of how to deal with these adults and how to plan for integrating these successfully into ordinary classes and avoid drop out.

3. To develop a common strategy on how to enhance completion rates in our regions, by being more capable of understanding adults with psychological problems.
