The Body Project has produced intervention effects for eating disorder risk factors and symptoms in eight independent research groups. It is the only eating disorder prevention program that has met the criteria necessary for an intervention to be considered efficacious by the APA. Positive effects of this intervention have resulted when delivered by research-trained staff, existing providers (e.g., health educators), and undergraduate students suggesting that it can be disseminated by a variety of providers. Perhaps most importantly, the Body Project has been shown to produce a 60% reduction in the incidence of eating disorders over a three-year follow-up period.
