The conclusion addresses opportunities for progress in the field of body image by integrating the positive body image and embodiment domains and examining positive constructs of living in the body, protective factors, and related interventions. The conceptual articulation of positive ways of inhabiting the body broadens the range of factors included in etiological theories of body image and establishes important intervention goals. The breadth of protective factors addressed in this volume provides a wealth of ideas about constructive social initiatives. The volume also clarifies the value of adding a positive lens to examining established therapy and prevention interventions. As a whole, the edited volume suggests many promising paths in incorporating a positive lens to the study of the way people inhabit their bodies, related protective factors, and enriched health promotion and therapy interventions.
