Abstract

The relationship between body image attitudes and psychosocial development was examined in a sample of 144 college females, using multiple measures of body image. Canonical analysis and multiple regression procedures revealed that attitudes toward body parts and processes; body dissatisfaction; and evaluations of health, fitness, and appearance were associated with salubrious lifestyle and establishing and clarifying purpose tasks of psychosocial development. © 1995 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
