Body-cathexis and self-cathexis in an interactional, awareness training class.

Body-cathexis and self-cathexis in an interactional, awareness training class. This study examined the effects of a psychology of adjustment class on body-acceptance and self-acceptance. An introductory psychology class served as a control group. Subjects were pre- and posttested with the Body-cathexis and Self-cathexis scales. Two by two analyses of covariance indicated that the adjustment group showed a larger gain on both scales than the control. Sex interacted with group significantly on the Body-cathexis scale only. Means indicated that the main effect of groups on the Body-cathexis scale may be attributed to the larger gains by females in the adjustment class. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Perceptual and motor skills Pubmed
