Abstract

This article begins by reviewing the literature linking self esteem to eating disorders (EDs) in girls. Prevention strategies used to enhance self-esteem and some of the limitations of these approaches are then discussed. The article concludes with a presentation of a model that addresses these shortcomings and that will help guide the design, implementation, and evaluation of future, prevention programs targeting EDs.
