Stein, Rita F.
Adolescence, v22 n85 p77-90 Spr 1987
Compared self-concept of obese (N=28) and nonobese (N=58) female students in a junior nursing class. Found that obese students and students who considered themselves to be obese had lower self-esteem than did nonobese students. Revealed no relationships with regard to age of onset of obesity, and no significant relationships between social class and self-concept. (Author/ABB)
