Banfield, Sophie S.; McCabe, Marita P.
Adolescence, v37 n146 p373-93 Sum 2002
Evaluates the efficacy of a multidimensional model of body image that incorporated the dimensions of perception, affect, cognition, and behavior. Results did not support the hypothesized four-factor model, but rather a model that consisted of three factors. The results highlight the multidimensionality of the body image construct and the difficulty in attempting to simplify this construct. (Contains 54 references and 5 tables.) (GCP)
