Summary Despite an emphasis on large body sizes in Fiji, Fijian and Australian adolescents' personal body ideals were very similar. Both groups were inaccurate in their body size estimations. Perceived body image ideals of sociocultural agents, rather than their specific messages, were more strongly associated with adolescents' body size estimations and ideals. The professional portfolio specifically explores the role of parents in the development, maintenance, and treatment of children and adolescents' separation anxiety. The four case studies illustrated that the incremental benefits of including parents in CBT treatment were not entirely clear.
