dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to develop an eating disorder prevention program for adolescents in Lebanese schools. Interviews were conducted with two school counselors and an academic supervisor about the need for a prevention program at Lebanese schools. Also, questionnaires were distributed to 9-12 graders in two schools in Lebanon. The results of the questionnaires yield mixed results concerning the need for a prevention program. Only 35% of the students reported a need for a prevention program at their respective school. Data from the interviews showed the need for a prevention program. Moreover, prevention programs in Western Literature were reviewed and a prevention program was developed and adapted to Lebanese adolescents. The program includes all necessary components, such as content, skills, and the roles of key people responsible for implementing the program at the school. en_US
