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

    • "La literatura científica sobre los TCA coincide en señalar su etiología policausal en la que interactúan tanto factores predisponentes como desencadenantes y mantenedores. Al mismo tiempo, identifica la insatisfacción con la imagen corporal como uno de los principales factores predisponentes y detecta que esta se presenta mayormente en mujeres jóvenes a partir de la pubertad y la adolescencia (Baile et al., 2003; Rivarola, 2003). La insatisfacción con la imagen corporal se vincula fundamentalmente con alteraciones cognitivas y afectivas acerca del propio cuerpo que llevan a tener una concepción negativa del mismo. "

    ABSTRACT: Most of the approaches to the eating disorder considered to have a policausal etiology in which interacting predisposing factors, triggers and maintainers. Among the predisposing factors it noted that dissatisfaction with body image is very important, detecting their presence mostly in women from puberty and specifically in adolescence. Recent studies showed the influence that the aesthetic body model spread by the mass media has on dissatisfaction with body image. This pattern produces dissatisfaction with one's body and increases the levels of dissatisfaction. In the present research we have studied the connection between the two variables in 314 students at high school from Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was confirmed that there is a correlation between the variables, detecting that a higher level of influence of the beautiful pattern increases the dissatisfaction with body image. These results allow to hypothesize that both variables act as predisposing factors and provide evidence to theories that consider the eating disorder as culture-bound syndromes.

    • "Following a cutoff point on the EDI-BD subscale, results indicated that 5.4% of males and 16.5% of females in the secondary school population reported the presence of body dissatisfaction. Females tended to have higher body dissatisfaction scores than male students and it was comparable to findings found in national studies (Baile et al., 2003; Garner, 1998; Raich et al., 2001; Sepulveda et al., 2010; Toro et al., 2006) as in international studies (Jaeger et al., 2002; Neumark-Sztainer et al., 2006). Thus, the sociocultural context may influence men and women differently as social and cultural messages regarding men's and women's bodies may lead men and women to assess their body image differently.

    ABSTRACT: Correlational research has found associations between magazine and television exposure and body dissatisfaction. However, this relation is not direct, and various psychological variables may moderate and/or mediate this relation, such as awareness and internalization of the thin ideals, comparing oneself with ideal body image or self-esteem, as well as the patient’s body mass index (BMI). The aim of this study was to assess the association between magazine and television exposure and body dissatisfaction among Spanish adolescents by gender. A second aim was to determine the predictors of body dissatisfaction by gender.
