This study aimed to identify the relationships between body image, self-efficacy, and coping strategies in Indonesian adolescents who had been victims of body shaming. A cross-sectional descriptive-correlative method as used in this study. We recruited 168 high school students in a public school in Indonesia obtained through screening body shaming with a purposive sampling technique. The results of univariate analysis were 53% of adolescents had negative body image, 56% of adolescents had low self-efficacy, 73.8% of adolescents used emotional-focused coping. There was a statistically significant relationship between body image and self-efficacy (p = 0.000); as well as between self-efficacy and coping strategies (p = 0.001). However, that body image was not significantly related to the coping strategies (p = 0.124). Body image is linked to self-efficacy as self-efficacy is linked to the coping strategies among the Indonesian adolescents who had experienced body shaming.
