Body Image coverBody Image is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality, scientific articles on body image and human physical appearance. Body image is a multi-faceted concept that refers to persons’ perceptions and attitudes about their own body, particularly but not exclusively its appearance. The journal invites contributions from a broad range of disciplines – psychological science, other social and behavioral sciences, and medical and health sciences. The journal publishes original research articles, brief research reports, theoretical and review papers, and science-based practitioner reports of interest.

Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD, are the co-founders of Be Nourished, a leading voice in the mission to address body oppression and heal body shame. Since 2005, they have been holding space for people looking to let go of chronic patterns of dieting, disordered eating, and weight cycling. After years of deep listening, Hilary and Dana co-created their Body Trust® approach to help people find a way to truly heal and move towards a compassionate, sustainable form of self care. In a culture dominated by weight bias and body oppression, they believe reclaiming Body Trust® is the key to feeling psychologically and physically nourished.
