Eating Disorders presents a comprehensive and accessible investigation of eating disorders, spanning topics such as historical and cross-cultural trends in prevalence of eating pathology, biological bases of eating disorders, and treatment and prevention. It provides an examination of the intersections of culture, mind, and body, and includes case studies throughout, helping bring eating disorders to life. This second edition is fully revised and updated to reflect changes in the DSM-5 as well as research and practice advances that have occurred over the past decade. Specifically, the second edition provides coverage of newly named syndromes, a new chapter on feeding disorders and obesity, an expanded discussion of RDOC initiative, expanded coverage of eating disorders in men, a section on mediators and moderators of treatment response, a section of suggested additional sources that includes articles, books, movies, and on-line sources for reliable and accurate information, a new description of cognitive behavior therapy that outlines what CBT for bulimia nervosa looks like as experienced from the patient's perspective, and a new discussion of prevalence and risk of dietary supplements. The book will be useful in abnormal psychology, clinical psychology, gender and psychopathology, and eating disorders courses, and as a supplemental text in courses within nursing, nutrition, and sports medicine.
