CALL for Participation: A Study of Filipina American Women

Filipinos are becoming one of the largest Asian groups in the United States but there is very little information about Filipinos in psychology.

The reason for this research or study is to see if there is a connection between images of thin, tall, “beautiful” women in the media and self-esteem and not feeling satisfied with your body. This will hopefully help mental health professionals understand Filipino women better and possible issues Filipino women may have about how they look so that they can help Filipino women feel better about themselves. 

This study is being conducted by Nicole Dionisio who is a doctoral student from Walden University as a requirement for completing a doctoral degree in clinical psychology.
