      • Determine the most effective strategies for successful implementation of BodyWorks
    • Key Findings
      • BodyWorks significantly changed parent intentions, motivation, and immediate behavior.
      • Girls responded positively to their parents/caregivers’ participation in BodyWorks .
      • Once enrolled in the 10 session program, 70 % of parents stayed for the full program. We are continuing to increase the number of parents taught.
      • BodyWorks led to an initial, effective train-the-trainer process; it was more effective in recruiting other trainers than in recruiting parents/caregivers.
