Title - The Effect of Peer Modeling of Body Image and Eating Behaviors on Body Image in Young Adult Females

Speaker: Melissa Heinrich
PhD Student, UT Dallas

Females experience a disproportionate amount of body image disturbance and problematic eating behavior, especially in adolescence and young adulthood. One way that people learn these behaviors is through peer modeling, where people directly imitate the behaviors that they observe in others. This study used a peer confederate to model positive and negative body image and eating comments to participants to investigate short- term changes in body image and eating behavior.

This talk is in-person in JO 4.306 and also is a virtual event. At 2:30pm on May. 2, join the talk on MS Teams.
