Body Image

Body Image: Being Comfortable in Your 'Genes'

This discussion-based presentation addresses the many facets of body image, and how you can empower yourself and others towards positive body image.

The Body Project

The Body Project is a body-acceptance program designed to help students feel better about their bodies.  Students will define and describe the “thin-ideal” present in our society and media, and the potentially harmful impact of these ideals on body image. The program encourages students to challenge the “thin ideal” through discussion and various activities that has been shown to improve body image satisfaction.

This research-based program has been shown to improve body satisfaction and acceptance among college students, and reduce risks for unhealthy eating behaviors, disordered eating and eating disorders. The program has been implemented on over 100 college campuses across the country.

The program entails two 2-hours sessions, scheduled 1-2 weeks apart (4 hours total), led by peer faciliators in small groups of 6-10 students. In order to get the most out of the program, student groups are asked to register only if they are able to attend both 2-hour sessions.  The Body Project is targeted toward individuals who identify as women; however, men are welcome to participate as well.
