SKU: INR-9781984552365 Categories: , Tags: , , , ,


Eating Disorders provides an introduction to the characteristics and criteria associated with a variety of forms of disordered eating as they are represented in the radically reconfigured section on Feeding and Eating Disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). Anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder and compulsive overeating are joined by avoidant-restrictive food intake disorder, pica, and a range of other forms of disordered eating. Key features are covered and their causes, presentation and treatment are addressed. Special attention is dedicated to understanding eating disorders in women, men, athletes and multicultural populations. Attention is given to critical factors in the development and maintenance of eating disorders, too. These include personality features and family characteristics, as well as sexual orientation, sociocultural, and genetic influences.
