The Effects of Appearance-Related Media on Body Image

Hometown: Wakefield, Rhode Island

Department: Psychology

Advisor: Catherine Forestell

The goal of my Honors Thesis will be to expand upon previous findings to determine how viewing media advertisements of attractive women and men affects changes in body image in female and male participants respectively, relative to a control group. We will also determine whether this effect is moderated by participants' positive body image, appearance-ideal internalization, self-esteem, and mood.
