Title: Seymour Fisher Contributions To Research On Body Image [as Contribuições De Seymour Fisher Para Os Estudos Em Imagem Corporal]
Author: Ribeiro P.R.L.
Tavares M.C.F.
Abstract: The aim of this work was to systematically review Seymour Fisher contributions to research on body image. A literature review of his work on body perception, distorted body image, body boundary, assigned meanings to specific body areas, and general body awareness was carried out on four of the books written by the author. Fisher correlated those variables with defense mechanisms, adaptation, and body anxiety. Moreover, he also considered the roles played by culture and personality on the complex phenomenon of body experience. This review intends to disseminate Seymour Fisher contributions among Brazilian researchers on body image. © FTCD/CIDESD.
