THE GOODFORM PROGRAM

Improving adolescent boys' body image and reducing supplement use

Goodform is a 4-session program for grade 9-12 boys that has been based on two existing, effective body image interventions, and evaluated in a WADA -funded Randomised Controlled Trial [RCT] at Victoria University.
