No study has examined the effects of a behavioral experiment focused on reducing social pressure to be thin; researchers designed a behavioral program to study the efficacy of reducing perceived pressure among female students in Japan. In a study by Stice, Marti, and Durant (2011), social pressure to be thin predicted the onset of threshold or subthreshold bulimia nervosa (BN) in a 7-year follow-up. We hypothesized that a behavioral experiment, the “most powerful method for bringing about change in cognitive therapy” (Bennett-Levy et al., 2015), will reduce social pressure to be thin, which is one of the key factors to address to prevent the onset of eating disorders (ED).
