This study serves as an initial attempt to correct body image misperceptions with the goal of decreasing body image disturbance among college women. Results showed a small improvement in body image after immediately reviewing accurate normative information concerning body image. However, gains were not maintained two weeks later. Implications for treatment and future research are offered.
