Publisher Comments:

The mortality rate associated with eating disorders is higher than that of any other psychiatric illness. What are the factors that influence abnormal perceptions of body image and trigger the deadly behaviors of food deprivation or uncontrollable gluttony? This indispensable resource thoroughly examines the complex subject of eating disorders, particularly the sociocultural, psychological, and nutritional aspects of eating disorders and body image.

Eating Disorders: An Encyclopedia of Causes, Treatment, and Prevention explores the definitions, risk factors, symptoms, and health consequences of such illnesses as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating. The author discusses the assessment and treatment of these conditions, and imparts health education strategies related to the "Dos and Don'ts" of awareness and prevention efforts. Additionally, she shares tips for recognizing symptoms and discusses where to seek help if a friend or family member is affected. Topics include flight attendants and body weight requirements, the impact of Virtual Reality, and media and sociocultural influences.
