ABSTRACT El objetivo de este trabajo es averiguar si la forma de administrar una subescala de evaluación de Insatisfacción Corporal (IC), procedente de un cuestionario más amplio, afecta a la tendencia de respuesta. En la investigación participaron 147 adolescentes estudiantes de secundaria de entre 14 y 17 años y de ambos sexos, los cuales fueron asignados a tres condiciones de investigación. Al primer grupo se le administró sola la subescala de IC del Eating Disorders Inventory (EDI-2), al segundo grupo se le administró la subescala IC del EDI dentro de todo el cuestionario EDI-2, y al tercer grupo se les suministró la misma subescala mezclada con otro cuestionario, el Eating Atittudes Test (EAT-40). Los resultados muestran que no existen diferencias significativas en las puntuciones obtenidas en IC, en las tres formas diferentes de administración de la misma escala. Las chicas obtienen mayores valores de IC que los chicos. La confirmación de estos resultados en otras edades y muestras más amplias, permitirá que en la investigación de IC a través de una escala tan difundida como la del EDI, pueda hacerse sin administrar todo el EDI completo

    ABSTRACT: his study examines the differences between the different subdomains of physical selfconcept, based on body dissatisfaction and Body Mass Index (BMI). A sample of 447 spanish female adolescents aged 12 to 17 participated in this study, and were administered the Physical Self-Concept Questionnaire (CAF), the Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ), and Gardner’s Scale for the Assessment of Body Image. Anthropometric data was collected to calculate their BMI. The results indicate that greater body dissatisfaction and higher BMI were associated with worse physical perceptions, especially in relation to appearance and a more devalued self-concept. In conclusion, the importance of a healthy body image is highlighted, as it configures the self – and general – concept in adolescent females. Further details are reported in the text.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between disordered eating behaviours/attitudes and mass media exposure in a cross-sectional national survey of 1165 Spanish secondary students (age between 14 and 16 years). A battery of questionnaires were used to investigate mass media influence, body dissatisfaction, physical appearance, sociocultural attitudes and self-esteem. Likewise, the EAT-26 questionnaire was used to assess disordered eating behaviours/attitudes, identifying that 6.6% (n = 32) of the male and 13.6% (n = 68) of the female students reached a cut-off point of 20 or above. The main finding was that female and male adolescents with disordered eating showed an increased exposure to TV and magazine sections related to body image, specifically regarding music video channels, in comparison with those without eating disordered, gender-matched counterparts. However, findings indicate that media exposure was different to some degree between males and females with disordered eating behaviour. Males with disordered eating behaviours and attitudes were associated with higher TV and magazine exposure to health sections and also greater body dissatisfaction, internalisation of the thin-ideal and social and appearance comparison. In females, disordered eating was associated with higher TV and magazine exposure to dieting, fashion and sport sections, greater body dissatisfaction, internalisation and awareness of the thin-ideal and lower self-esteem. Understanding the mechanism involved in the media exposure's influence on adolescents is critical in preventing disordered eating.
