Description

Body image describes the perception that a person has of his or her physical appearance. Body image can be influenced by a complex interaction of factors ranging between a person’s individual thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviours regarding their own body, and their perception of what counts as the ideal body within their own social and cultural environment, and in the media. Disordered eating, body dysmorphic disorder, over-exercise and cosmetic surgery can all be manifestations of unhealthy body image. This book explains body dissatisfaction and eating issues, including eating disorders. The book also focuses on developing ways of improving body image, particularly in children and young people.
