ABSTRACT El presente estudio tuvo como objetivo evaluar dos programas de prevención primaria de trastornos alimentarios, uno de ellos basado en la formación de audiencias críticas hacia la publicidad televisiva y el otro en una estrategia psicoeducativa, en diecinueve adolescentes mujeres estudiantes de primero de secundaria. La selección de las muestras fue intencional, considerándose como criterio de inclusión la presencia de insatisfacción con la imagen corporal. Se encontraron diferencias estadísticamente significativas en el primero de esos grupos en cuanto a la preocupación por el peso, la comida y la conducta alimentaria compulsiva al seguimiento; para el segundo grupo, en lo referente a figura ideal y satisfacción-insatisfacción con la imagen corporal, aunque no se mantuvieron los cambios en el seguimiento. Es necesario considerar el nivel de riesgo de las participantes, otros factores de riesgo asociados y la aplicación de seguimientos a largo plazo a fin de explicar con mayor claridad los resultados encontrados

    ABSTRACT: Over the past two decades, scores of articles and several books have been published calling for more attention to the prevention of eating disorders, but less than two dozen prevention intervention studies have been conducted to date. This paper reports the results of a systematic review of 20 empirical intervention studies on eating disorders prevention, discussing the data accumulated on what has and has not been effective. Beyond a description of study design and findings, this paper devotes special attention to the theoretical orientations of the studies and their implied assumptions about preventive strategies. Though there has been a compelling interest in social, political and economic factors influencing the incidence of disordered eating, little of this interest has been carried over into the prevention end of eating disorders research. Most studies reported thus far have been designed to target and measure change principally on the individual level, to the exclusion of considering leverage points for intervention in the larger social environment. This paper concludes with a recommendation for new attention to a model of proactive primary prevention targeted at environmental change and cross-disciplinary collaboration to achieve a reduction in the incidence of eating disorders.

    ABSTRACT: This study was designed to determine the effects of media-portrayed idealized images on young women's body shame and appearance anxiety, and to establish whether the effects depend on advertisement type and on participant self-objectification. Participants were 39 female university students. Twenty-four magazine advertisements comprised 12 body-related and 12 non-body-related products, one half of each with, and the other one half without, idealized images. Preexposure and post exposure body shame and appearance anxiety measures were recorded. Appearance anxiety increased after viewing advertisements featuring idealized images. There was also a significant interaction between self-objectification level and idealized body (presence vs. absence). No differences emerged for body-related compared with non-body-related product advertisements. The only result for body shame was a main effect for time. Participants' body shame increased after exposure to idealized images, irrespective of advertisement type. Although our findings reveal that media-portrayed idealized images detrimentally affect the body image of young women, they highlight the individual differences in vulnerability and the different effects for different components of body image. These results are discussed in terms of their implications for the prevention and early intervention of body image and dieting-related disorders. (
