Abstract or Summary
  • This study explores the narratives of male undergraduate students and their experiences with body dissatisfaction. The inquiry utilizes a constructivist epistemology and a qualitative design in order to best understand previous and current experiences of individuals who have reflected upon their body image as part of their identity. To gather data, this study utilizes narrative inquiry through in-depth interviews and asks participants to share stories in their lives that have shaped the way they view their bodies. Additionally, this research attempts to learn more about their coping strategies, including self-care, help-seeking, and risk-taking practices connected to body dissatisfaction. Participant responses were used to create themes that best represented the coping strategies of the sample of male undergraduates. The results of the study could be utilized by universities to provide direction to counselors and university practitioners in their support of body dissatisfied male students as well as in their promotion and programming efforts in body image.
