Abstract: 

Introduction: The body image is a multidimensional structure extensively studied over the last few decades. Several studies investigated the relationship between body image and socio- psychological factors, vice versa. The current study aimed at determining the relationship between self- efficacy and attachment styles, and body image among female students.
Methods: The current descriptive, correlational study was conducted on 181 students selected by the multistage cluster sampling method out of 373 freshman grade female students studying at state vocational-technical high schools in Qazvin, Iran, in the academic year 2016-2017. The research instruments included the revised adult attachment scale (RAAS), general self- efficacy scale developed by Sherer et al., and the physical self-description questionnaire developed by Marsh et al. Finally, the collected data were analyzed using the Pearson correlation coefficient and multivariate regression analysis with SPSS.
Results: The findings of data analysis showed a significant relationship between self- efficacy and body image in the subjects (P<0.01). In other words, the higher the students’ self- efficacy, the more positive body image. Of different types of attachment styles (secure, avoidant, and ambivalent), the students with secure attachment style enjoyed a better body image (P<0.01), and those with avoidant and ambivalent attachment styles did not enjoy a good body image. Moreover, among predictor variables, self- efficacy as well as secure and avoidant attachment styles could predict body image among the female students (P<0.01).
Conclusions: Overall, the results showed a significant relationship between general self-efficacy and attachment styles, and visual imaging. According to the results, it is suggested to plan educational programs for students, parents, and teachers based on the principles and concepts of self- efficacy using scientific and applicable methods to promote it.
