Abstract

Male adolescents and men may experience body image dissatisfaction/distress (BID), and their symptoms and behaviors may often go unrecognized or underdiagnosed. This lack of recognition occurs because the symptoms are often at the subclinical level on the continuum of BID, yet more men than ever before are experiencing BID. The authors describe BID and present an overview of BID symptoms, related diagnoses, and recommended prevention and intervention strategies for men experiencing BID.
