Body Image Research?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I might be starting a bit early (I'm applying to clinical psychology PhD programs for entry in fall 2017), but wondering if you have any suggestions for faculty in clinical psychology PhD programs who study body image? I'm not really interested in eating disorder research, but more so on body image, itself.

I know Kristin von Ranson at the University of Calgary sometimes does body image (collaborates with Shelley Russell-Mayhew in the Counselling Department), even though the bulk of her research does focus on ED. I know some past students have focused exclusively on body image research.

This is some general advice on picking PIs based on research interest: Start with a recently published paper on the topic you're interested in. Look at who cites it, who they've cited. This is one of the easier ways to see who's currently doing this line of work. Check out their lab pages, check their google scholar page.
