Investigating family, peer, and social media influence on body image and disordered eating among adults
About this study
The current study aims to broaden the understanding of the sociocultural factors, namely peer and parental influence and social media use (a contemporary extension of media), that contribute to body image and eating disorder symptomatology in adults. Specifically, this will be explored in relation to body image, body dissatisfaction, eating disorder symptoms, and quality of life. The improved understanding of how these factors influence body image and eating disorder symptomatology can help researchers and clinicians develop appropriate preventative treatments and interventions.
