Body Image Change and Adolescent Depressive Symptoms.
Siegel, Judith M.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v17 n1 p27-41 Jan 2002
Examined the temporal association between body image and depressive symptoms in African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, and white adolescents. Found that girls were more influenced by body image change than boys. Compared to other ethnic groups, African American girls experienced a greater increase in psychological distress as body image declined. (Author/DLH)
