Body Project Collaborative Background
The Body Project Collaborative was formed in 2012 by Drs. 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 both the strategy of training collegiate peer-leaders to facilitate Body Project groups in university settings and the Train-the-Trainer Approached used by many Body Project community partners. Collectively, they have over 30+ 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 140 college campuses; collectively it has been delivered to over 3.5 million girls and young women in 25 countries. 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. The Body Project Collaborative is both proud and grateful to partner with a diverse array of organizations including the Comenzar de Nuevo, Dove Self Esteem Project and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, the Eating Recovery Foundation, the National Eating Disorders Association, and many other educational and community organizations.
