Body Image in Adolescence: Cross-Cultural Research--Results of the Preliminary Phase of a Quantitative Survey.
Ferron, Christine
Adolescence, v32 n127 p735-45 Fall 1997
Examines the emotional and relational components of body image in French (N=80) and American (N=60) adolescents. Results indicate that major cultural differences arose from the belief that the real body and the ideal body coincide. Gender differences centered more on the level of control of body changes and on self-assessment modes. (RJM)
