Body image is an important developmental issue for female adolescents and a risk factor for developing eating disorder. It is positively related to self-esteem, self-efficacy and sense of wholeness to one’s self. In this study, we proposed a prevention program for body image for female adolescents based on dance movement therapy approach, called Dongshi-based body image promotion program. It is believed that the program can improve their body image through body experience. We expected that the program can increase participants’ body image. Eighty-one females senior high school students aged 16-17 were recruited. The female students were divided into three groups, with 18 students participating Dongshi-based body image program (experiment group), 27 attending swimming class (comparison group), and 36 attending regular education course (general control group). The Dongshi-based body image program designed for the experimental group was 90 minutes for each session, with a total of 8 sessions in 8 weeks. All groups were measured body image by self-report inventory at pre-and-post intervention. Comparing with comparison and control groups, experimental group increased their body appreciation, satisfactions of the appearance evaluation and body parts satisfaction. The experimental group also became less concerned about their appearance orientation. The study indicated that the Dongshi-based body image program could facilitate bodily self and body appreciation. It implied the program has the potentiality for improvement of body image for female adolescents.
