Body Project

The Body Project is a dissonance-based body-acceptance program designed to help women resist cultural pressures to conform to the appearance ideal standard of female beauty and reduce their pursuit of unrealistic bodies. The Body Project is supported by more research than any other body image program and has been found to reduce onset of eating disorders.

Why participate?

1. The Body Project has been scientifically demonstrated to reduce thin ideal internalization, body dissatisfaction, and unhealthy behaviors related to eating.

2. The Body Project builds community and helps groups of women develop a shared understanding and commitment to body acceptance. You can even join a private FaceBook group with other CWU women after attending!

3. It is fun and you will leave feeling great! 

If you are concerned about yourself or a friend who may be dealing with an eating disorder please take an anonymous self screening here!
