Positive body image promotion is necessary to be done because even a little negative body image on female youth can cause body appearance and eating disorder. In the perspective of cognitive behavior approach, body image problem is caused by a gap between appearance, function, or body perception of the real one with the ideal one. Hence, the proper preventive perception is to make female youth have a positive body image. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been proved to overcome various eating disorder, body image problem, and obesity on children, teenagers, and adults effectively. But, preventive intervention is rarely applied to enhance body image particularly for college students. Therefore, the writers construct an alternative draft model of positive body image promotion for female college students, called "Kembang Kuncup", as an analogy-for female college students who have not yet optimized their self-potentials. "Kembang Kuncup" also stands for "female college students group who are proud of their positive body image / kelompok mahasiswi bangga karena punya citra diri positif." "Kembang Kuncup" is composed of three big stages. They are psycho education, cognitive-behaviour, and interpersonal. Total number of all sessions is 12 times during 3-4 months with each session lasts for 60-90 minutes. To measure the "KembangKuncup" effectivity, data that will be taken from the participants are ideal body size; ritualistic body image behaviours and body image avoidance; cognitive distortion in body image context; and self esteem. Statistic test that will be employed is Mixed ANOVA by comparing pre-treatment, post-treatment, and follow-up data, between experiment and control group. The readers are welcome to criticize or test alternative model design that is constructed in this paper.
