Enhance Your Clinical Practice
Body image concerns plague many girls and women, and some girls and women will struggle with full threshold or sub--‐threshold eating disorders. The Body Project, a cognitive dissonance--‐ based prevention, is a body image improvement program that has been found to reduce onset of eating disorders in high school and college aged females. This workshop will introduce practicing clinicians to the dissonance approach, review the empirical support and existing research, and provide experiential training in delivering core components of The Body Project. Participants will learn brief and practical interventions that can be adapted to a variety of clinical formats to help girls and women develop healthy body image. Please join us for this innovative training opportunity to enhance your clinical practice!
