The Body Project Workbook is designed for use in group treatment of young woman who are at risk of developing eating disorders. Filled with handouts, educational information, and worksheets, this workbook supplements a two-part group intervention for adolescent and college-aged girls outlined in the corresponding Facilitator's Guide. In the first part of the program, participants critique the thin-ideal through discussion, role-playing, and written exercises. Participants learn skills that increase body satisfaction, decrease unhealthy weight control behaviors, and prevent eating disorder symptoms. The second part of the intervention is designed to help participants make gradual and permanent lifestyle changes to achieve a healthy body weight. It teaches how to eat for energy balance, make healthy food choices, and incorporate physical exercise into a daily routine. Tools found in the workbook include self-affirmation exercises, tips for eating out, healthy diet and exercise principles, and daily food records.
Group facilitators should have a copy of The Body Project Facilitator’s Guide (Code BPR).
