Body Sense - Promoting a positive body image

“BodySense: A Positive Body Image Initiative for Athletes" is a novel approach to building safe and healthy sport environments. This initiative is dedicated to fostering positive body image in male and female athletes to proactively prevent disordered eating and muscle dysmorphia.

The program has successfully created a model for the promotion of positive body image in sport settings. It speaks to athletes, and also to the people that influence them such as parents, teachers, coaches and leaders in the sporting community.

For more information about the BodySense model, read the 10 BodySense Basics – a guide to improving the climate in your team or club, and to best support athletes who are at risk of developing negative body image because of the demands of their sport.
