Abstract

77
THIS study is focused on personal and sociocultural factors related to body cult which can influence young’s wellbeing, grouping them into dimensions of influence and studying in depth the role of media and their messages as elements also related to body cult. A statistical multivariable analysis has been carried out on a sample of 452 young people’s surveys in order to obtain three sociocultural dimensions: “the social and personal dimension”, “the sociocultural dimension related to media”, and “the body cult images dimension”. Finally, there seem to be some significant differences related to opinions between women and men about these dimensions

Keywords

Sociocultural factors, media, youth, wellbeing, body cult, women, men.
