Mastery course

We are often exposed to images of seemingly successful women promoting a body ideal that is unrealistic and unhealthy for most. Body Project is a program where young women can work together to develop a positive body image for themselves and others. Body dissatisfaction and concerns related to body image are common among young women.

The Body Project has proven effective over many years and in multiple countries in improving body dissatisfaction and concerns related to body image. Additionally, research has shown that the Body Project not only has a preventive effect but can also alleviate symptoms in those who have developed an eating disorder.
