Summary Little is known about the body image concerns of non-European men living in Australia. In this research, Chinese-Australians demonstrated an "holistic" body image that included body shape, height, clothing and hairstyling concerns. Contrastingly, European-Australians separated muscularity concerns from general appearance considerations. Chinese-Australians utilised both Asian and Western internalisation/appearance comparison targets. The portfolio aims to critically evaluate the clinical utility of Evidence Based Practice (EBP). Four case studies analyse the practical advantages and disadvantages of EBP.
