Abstract

A convenience sample of 109 subjects was chosen for investigation of several psychological constructs. Each person rated Present and Ideal Self on 42 semantic differential bipolar scales and Present and Ideal Body on 28 semantic differential bipolar scales. Five dimensions for each of the two self and two body concepts were obtained via factor analysis. The dimensions were then subjected to canonical correlation and multiple regression to determine interrelationships. Significant relationships were found between Present Self and Present Body as well as between Present and Ideal Self and Present and Ideal Body. The significant results have implications for development of psychotherapeutic nursing interventions that would be directed toward both self-concept and body image as well as increasing the congruence between Present and Ideal Self-concept and Body Image.
