The Body Project targets toward young women with body image concerns because they are at elevated risk for eating pathology, and prevention effects tend to be larger for individuals at higher risk for eating disorders. The intervention is characterized as a body acceptance class, rather than an eating disorder prevention program, to facilitate recruitment and avoid stigmatization. We recommend a multi-pronged approach to recruitment, with at least one form of individual/direct contact. One question can screen for the presence of at least a moderate degree of body dissatisfaction. The Body Project is not intended as a stand-alone treatment, particularly for individuals with anorexia nervosa, whom should be referred to a clinic or therapist for treatment.
