Chapter 8 provides the script for the refined enhanced-dissonance version of the 4-session Body Project. Each session begins with a voluntary commitment to participate—to increase accountability and dissonance. In the first session participant-led discussions introduce the thin-ideal and review costs associated with this ideal. In the second session, participants engage in role-plays to dissuade someone from pursuing the thin-ideal and debrief home exercises. In the third session, participants practice “Quick comebacks” to thin-ideal statements and debrief home exercises. Participants also discuss reasons for signing up for the class, and are asked to do a behavioral challenge. The fourth session focuses on future pressures to be thin and a discussion of the benefits of the group, as well as debriefing for home exercises. In each session, all participants are expected to talk and generate anti-thin-ideal statements in each session.Abstracts and keywords to be supplied.
