Desde una visi&oacute;n occidental, &eacute;sta promueve la belleza del cuerpo como objeto para alcanzar el &eacute;xito social. Los j&oacute;venes universitarios en su af&aacute;n de alcanzar el ideal est&eacute;tico, en algunos casos se ven involucrados en trastornos de la conducta alimentaria, distorsi&oacute;n de su imagen corporal y conductas depresivas. Situaciones que repercuten en su comportamiento y accionar como futuros profesionales. Esta investigaci&oacute;n tiene como objetivo realizar una evaluaci&oacute;n de la imagen corporal de los estudiantes mujeres de la Facultad de Psicolog&iacute;a de la Universidad de Cuenca-Ecuador y, adem&aacute;s identificar posibles trastornos alimentarios.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Metodolog&iacute;a</strong>: Se evaluaron 288 estudiantes de sexo femenino de 18 a 22 a&ntilde;os de edad, de la Facultad de Psicolog&iacute;a de la Universidad de Cuenca-Ecuador a quienes se aplic&oacute; el Cuestionario de Figura Corporal (BSQ). El enfoque empleado fue cuantitativo de dise&ntilde;o exploratorio descriptivo, con un muestreo aleatorio.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Resultados:</strong> Se reporta que el 17.01% de todos los estudiantes universitarios que participaron en esta investigaci&oacute;n, tienen un alto riesgo de sufrir un trastorno alimentario. De acuerdo al Cuestionario de la Figura Corporal al obtener m&aacute;s de 105 puntos, se considera un estado patol&oacute;gico. Por otro lado, el 83% de los investigados se encuentran en el rango no patol&oacute;gico.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Conclusi&oacute;n:</strong> Los resultados indican que en los primeros ciclos de estudio se encuentran la mayor cantidad de casos patol&oacute;gicos, siendo un grupo insatisfecho con su imagen corporal.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p>\n\n<p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Culture implicitly or explicitly establishes a body image stereotype. A western perspective, promotes the beauty of the body as an object to achieve social success. Young university students in their quest to achieve the ideal aesthetic, in some cases get involved into eating disorders, distortion of their body image and depressive behaviors. Situations that affect their behavior and performance as future professionals. This research aims to carrying out an assessment of the body image of the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Cuenca-Ecuador female students, and moreover, identifying possible eating disorders.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Methodology: </strong>288 female students between 18 and 22 years old, from the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Cuenca-Ecuador to whom the Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ) was applied.
