Body Project Collaborative Background
The Body Project Collaborative was formed in 2012 by Dr.’s Eric Stice and Carolyn Becker to create new training opportunities for people interested in facilitating the Body Project. Dr. Stice created the Body Project and Dr. Becker pioneered the strategy of training collegiate peer-leaders to facilitate Body Project groups in university settings. Collectively, they have over 27 years of experience in testing and running the Body Project in a multitude of settings and with a variety of group facilitators. To date, the Body Project has been used by numerous high schools and over 100 college campuses (sometimes under the names 'Reflections: Body Image Program®' in the U.S. and 'Succeed Body Image Program®' in the United Kingdom), and has been delivered to over 200,000 young women. Research supports the use of the Body Project not only with those who have elevated body dissatisfaction, but also in more diverse groups of adolescent girls and young women that include those with lower levels of body dissatisfaction.
