Athletes Embodied: Developing and disseminating a sport-specific body image program

The goal of the project is to develop relationships between academic and non-academic partners to gain insight and knowledge that can be used to inform the Athletes Embodied program. This initial partnership is the first step in establishing an effective and feasible program to reduce body image concerns in girls’ sport, enhance sport experiences, and contribute to retaining female adolescents in sport. The Canadian Eating Disorder Strategy, informed by NEDIC, has identified sport as a significant area of concern among female body image and disordered eating. Athletes Embodied will aim to address the needs of this population and enhance the sport experience among female adolescents
