The Body Acceptance Program is a dissonance-based body-acceptance workshop. It is designed to help college-age women resist sociocultural pressures to conform to the thin-ideal and reduce their pursuit of thinness. This is achieved through verbal, written, and behavioral exercises. Results from these workshops have shown improved body satisfaction, improved mood, reduced use of unhealthy weight-control behaviors, and decreased binge eating and other eating disorder symptoms.
