dc.description.abstractThe main focus of the current research is to determine whether teasing by families has more of an influence on an individual's body image than teasing by peers. Teasing is one of several factors that influence a person's body image, and much research has focused on the significant long-term effects produced by teasing at an early age. This research explores exactly how teasing by family members and peers contributes to body dissatisfaction and negative body image. The research utilizes social comparison theory in order to determine how an individual's body image is influenced by close family members and peers.en_US
