Opis: Adolescence and Body Image - Zali Yager, Lina Ricciardelli

Body image is a significant issue for the majority of adolescents. Anxieties relating to body image can be crippling across both genders, their debilitating effects sometimes leading to mental health problems. This important book is the first of its kind to focus specifically on adolescents, providing a comprehensive overview of the biological, psychological and socio-cultural factors relating to the development of body image. It also provides a detailed review of the measures which can be taken to address body dissatisfaction. Discussing the role of culture, family, peers, schools, sport and media in stimulating a negative body image, the book also examines the different challenges faced by girls and boys as they grow. Eating disorders and body change strategies are also addressed, as well as the challenges faced by youngsters affected by conditions causing visible differences, such as hair loss in cancer patients.The book also presents original research, including the results from a large Australian study of the body image and associated health behaviours of adolescent boys, and the results of a study of current teaching practices relating to body image. Adolescence and Body Image will be ideal reading for students and researchers from a variety of fields, including developmental, health, and social psychology, sociology, and cultural and health studies. Professionals working with young people, whether in education, health promotion or any other allied discipline will also find this book an invaluable resource. This book does an impressive job of organizing, presenting, and analyzing three complex, multidimensional topics: body image, adolescence and the strengths and limitations of empirical research. It raises many unanswered questions, and skilfully conveys the diversity of topics and issues related to what we know about body image in adolescent females and males. For experts in body image and eating disorders it also presents an authoritative and practical set of answers to the often-heard lament: "How can anyone keep up with all the exciting new research on body image?" - Michael P. Levine, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, Kenyon College, USA1. Introduction 2. Assessment and measurement 3. Body change strategies and appearance management behaviours 4. Biological Factors 5. Gender, ethnicity and cultural factors 6. Media 7. Individual factors 8. Peers 9. Family 10. School 11. Sport 12. Visible differences 13. Prevention and treatment
