The Body Project

Celebrating Our Bodies Week February 24th-March 1st

This workshop provides a forum for female students to confront unrealistic beauty ideals and engage them in the development of healthy body image through verbal, written, and behavioral exercises. The conceptual basis for the Body Project is that if young women voluntarily argue against the societal appearance-ideal, this will result in a reduced subscription to this ideal and to consequent decreases in eating disorder risk factors and eating disorder behaviors.

*Students must attend both sessions: 2/25 and 03/03
