the Body Project Training
The Body Project is an evidence based curriculum backed by NEDA that provides a forum for women and girls to confront unrealistic beauty ideals and engages them in the development of healthy body image through verbal, written, and behavioral exercises.
Ophelia’s Place staff is trained in The Body Project and offers this training to anyone in the community who has the desire to create ongoing change within their circle of influence; be it a school, place of business, organization or within their personal lives.
Through our 17 year history we’ve found that we’re able to make the greatest impact when we focus on training teachers and staff resulting in an overall culture shift within the school, rather than focussing our resources on one-off classroom presentations. Our goal is to create the greatest impact possible resulting in lasting change in your school, we’d love for you to consider our Educator’s Package.
Our Educator’s Packages are contracts designed for schools, universities, and other organizations that grant 6-12 teachers, nurses, social workers, and other key staff, parents, or leading students of your choice access to:
Our Every Body is Beautiful Project Digital Course
Our recommended protocol for connecting those you serve who may be struggling to treatment and support
And either a private Body Project Training or a Confident Body Confident Child Workshop
Presentations, workshops and Keynotes
