Abstract (type = abstract)
This study examined the transportability and generalizability of “Reflections,” an evidence-based eating disorder prevention program developed for undergraduate women. Previous trials of “Reflections” have been conducted at one local university in the Southern portion of the United States and with members of the TriDelta sorority at a Southern University. The program’s applicability to other sororities and to collegiate campuses in distinct geographical regions is therefore an important empirical question. This study also examined whether analyzing data with repeated measures ANOVA and latent growth curve modeling would yield similar results. Participants were undergraduate women recruited from one sorority at Rutgers University and were 18 years of age or older. Participants who took part in “Reflections” were assessed at three time points: baseline, post-treatment, and 5-month follow-up. Primary outcomes were body dissatisfaction (assessed using the Satisfaction and Dissatisfaction of Body Parts Scale), thin ideal internalization (assessed using the Ideal Body Stereotype Scale – Revised), negative affect (assessed using the Positive and Negative Affect Scale), and eating disorder psychopathology (assessed using the Eating Disorder Examination – Questionnaire). Results suggest that “Reflections” is transportable and generalizable, as the majority of eligible students participated in the program and evidenced statistically significant reductions in thin ideal internalization, eating disorder psychopathology, and body dissatisfaction at post-treatment and statistically significant reductions in thin ideal internalization and eating disorder psychopathology at 5-month follow-up. Participants did not show reductions in negative affect and rates of participation were lower than those obtained in previous studies. When data were analyzed using a latent growth curve model, participants evidenced statistically significant reductions in thin ideal internalization, eating disorder psychopathology, and body dissatisfaction from baseline through 5-month follow-up. Implications of the findings and future directions are discussed.
