Abstract: Collaborating with youth, we co-designed a program to increase body image satisfaction through challenging the cultural narrative around appearance ideals. The emerging curriculum builds on an evidence-based cognitive dissonance program through integration of embodiment and activism practices. Results of program pilot studies indicate that youth engaged in challenging society’s appearance ideals, listening to their bodies, and practicing self-compassion. Program participation was associated with increases in belonging and trends of improvement in body acceptance and self-liking.
