Body Project

Do you want to improve your body image and self-confidence? If so, the Body Project at FSU is the ideal program to do just that! The Body Project is a body image program for FSU students with body dissatisfaction, an established risk factor for eating disorders. This group-based intervention provides a forum for young women and men who have internalized the thin-ideal or muscular ideal to critique it in verbal, written, and behavioral exercises. It appears to be the first eating disorder prevention program that has received support when delivered by research-trained staff, real-world providers, and even undergraduate peer leaders.

"My experience with the Body Project has empowered me to be comfortable in my own skin. I have gained confidence in myself that I didn't even know existed. I am excited to pass this information along to all of my friends and family in hopes that they also can have their lives changed." -KB, FSU BS '14

"Going through the body project has really made me appreciate all the great qualities I possess and it has also given me more confidence in how I view my body in its entirety. After completing this project, I feel more empowered to speak out against this social construction of beauty. By becoming a peer leader for the body project, I hope I can encourage other students to love their bodies and appreciate their uniqueness." -JM, FSU MS '15
