Current BodyWorks Evaluation

Shattuck & Associates is currently working with the Office on Women’s Health (OWH) to evaluate the BodyWorks program. You can help OWH find ways to improve the BodyWorks program. We are asking BodyWorks trainers to participate in an online survey to find out more about your experiences with the program.. The survey will take about 20 minutes and you can complete it online.  Look for a postcard and an email inviting you to participate, or visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/BodyWorksTrainers.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the evaluation or survey: bodyworks@shattuckandassociates.com, or toll free at 1-888-829-1777. Thank you for your time!

Returning toolkit tags

Whether you are conducting a one-day training session or a 10-session program for parents, please remember to ask participants to fill out their toolkit tags. Tags should be collected and returned to:

Hager Sharp
Attn: BodyWorks
1030 15th Street, NW, Suite 600E
Washington, DC 20005

When you mail in your toolkit tags, please include a note with the following information:

  • Your name
  • When your BodyWorks event was held
  • What type of event you held (parent/caregiver program or train-the-trainer session)

On behalf of the Office on Women's Health, Hager Sharp collects toolkit tags, and monitors a database to keep track of how many trainers have been trained and how many parents and caregivers have completed the program.

For Guys Training Guide Addendum

The most recent version of the BodyWorks toolkit includes information for parents and caregivers about adolescent boys. To update the current BodyWorks training manuals, the BodyWorks team has developed the For Guys Training Guide Addendum. This addendum package includes inserts that provide background about adolescent boys, modified case studies and other activities designed to include boys. Trainers can use their current Train-the-Trainer and Parent and Caregiver manuals by incorporating the modifications provided in this addendum.

If you would like to receive a copy of the For Guys Training Guide Addendum, please contact the BodyWorks team at bodyworks@hhs.gov.
