Too Fat or Too Thin?: A Reference Guide to Eating Disorders Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The deluge of information regarding eating disorders can be mystifying and misleading. It is often difficult to know where to begin and whom to trust. This practical resource guide for students and parents dispels the myths surrounding eating disorders. Chapters on anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, compulsive overeating, and other disorders use case studies and current research to describe and explain symptoms, dangers, and current theories about what causes such disorders.

Medical and psychological issues are thoroughly discussed in a manner accessible for students. Psychological therapies and other forms of treatment are described, providing each treatment's history and effectiveness. Other chapters focus on the prevention of eating problems, the relationship between image disturbances and popular culture, and controversies in the field of diagnosis and treatment. Resource lists of fiction and nonfiction books, movies, periodicals, and Web sites appropriate for students and parents can be found at the end of many chapters. An appendix reviews the current recommendations by the APA for treatment of specific types of eating disorders. This is a valuable reference resource for students, patients, parents, and professionals.
