The Body Project

Peer Education Programs

The Body Project has a similar design and goal as that of the Reflections Body Image Program. This project is to be implemented campus wide to all female students in order to reduce the risk for current and/or future eating disorder pathology. This is accomplished through four sessions where written, verbal and behavioral exercises help facilitate the movement away from valuing the thin-ideal to an understanding and acceptance of the healthy-ideal. The final goal is to improve body satisfaction and promote an overall feeling of positive body image and acceptance along with enhancing self-esteem and mood.
