Abood, Doris A.; Black, David R.
American Journal of Health Behavior, v24 n3 p209-19 May-Jun 2000
Evaluated a health education intervention that emphasized risk factors associated with drive for thinness and body dissatisfaction among female college athletes. Surveys of athletes in intervention and comparison groups indicated that the intervention was associated with decreased drive for thinness, which in turn was associated with decreased body dissatisfaction. Control group women scored lower on self-esteem and nutrition knowledge. (SM)
