3. Body image
“ The picture of our body which we form in our mind, that is to say the way in which our body appears to ourselves”
[Schilder 1935, cited in Price, 1990]
4. Body image continued Van der Velde (1985) suggests that body image should consider :
There are multiple & innumerable body images present, since we are not able to view the entire self at any one time.
Body images incorporate our interpretations of others appraisals & evaluations, as well as their reactions to our appearance.
Formation of body image includes the perceptions of the physical appearance of others.
Body image is important in its necessity for the interactions with others. Any contact with others, requires an image of self to be projected.
