Abstract

This theoretical research explores how psychodramatic techniques can be used to help adolescent girls develop a positive body image (PBI). This paper proposes the use of an approach that facilitates the growth of positive body image over one that attempts to get rid of negative body image. The literature suggests that psychodrama, with its experiential and active components, has the potential to facilitate PBI among girls when paired with the constructs that make up a positive body image which include body appreciation, body acceptance and love, broadly conceptualizing beauty, inner positivity, adaptive appearance investment, and filtering information in a body-protective manner. Recommendations for future research and the application of theoretical interventions are discussed.
