Abstract:

In a survey of Asian and non-Asian women in Canada, recently immigrated Asian women were more likely, due to cultural conflict, to manifest greater body shame and higher eating disorder symptomatology. Body shame declined with longer residency (acculturation). In contrast, non-Asian women showed increasing body mass index and symptomatology with longer residency.
