The Body Project
The Body Project is a peer-led body acceptance program to help college women resist cultural pressures to conform to the appearance ideal. Participation has been shown to reduce negative body image and disordered eating behaviors in young women.
The Body Project is run in small groups of women (typically between 6-12) by trained Peer Leaders. The time commitment for participating is two, two-hour sessions spaced about one week apart.
