The purpose of this directed project was to develop a primary prevention eating disorder curriculum for high school freshmen females. The program aimed to promote resilience against eating disorders by addressing major risk factors, including body image and self-esteem, challenging the media, and practices to achieve health at every size.
Following a review of current research, the curriculum was developed. Each lesson consisted of a lecture on core topics, a group discussion, and an activity to increase the impact of the information provided. At closing, a handout highlighting the presented material was distributed following each lesson. Additionally, pre and post-program questionnaires, as well as a single lesson evaluation tool were included.
An expert panel reviewed the curriculum and revisions were made following their feedback. This program was not required to be pilot tested for completion of the project, however it is recommended to do so prior to implementation.
