School Programs
Manual/Prevention Program 24 Pages

Happy Being Me is an evidence-based three-session classroom prevention intervention for girls aged 11 to 14 years. This program was developed to reduce body dissatisfaction, desire to obtain the thin body type portrayed as ideal by the media, peer interactions that contribute to body dissatisfaction, and body comparison tendency. The manual contains information to enable the facilitator to conduct each interactive session and resources required to deliver the session in the classroom. It includes media literacy but also provides resources for addressing peer influences that contribute to body dissatisfaction and disordered eating.
