We live in a society in which messages associating physical attractiveness with success and happiness are pervasive. There is an epidemic of appearance concerns amongst teenagers and adults in westernised countries and body image dissatisfaction is now considered normative.

The challenges facing them include difficulties with social encounters and the problem of having to cope with negative self perceptions.
