Overview

After a decade of intense research, it is clear that body image plays a critical role in the etiology, development, and treatment of eating disorders and obesity. Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity: An Integrative Guide for Assessment and Treatment integrates these findings on body image with empirically supported assessment and intervention guidelines for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and obesity. In addition, body image issues are explored in other important areas such as cosmetic plastic surgery and body dismorphic disorder. Written by leading experts in each of these areas, Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity covers physical and psychological diagnoses, treatment planning, and protocols for empirically supported intervention. How to decide which treatment to offer to which clients, how to combine body image modification techniques with interventions that can preserve life and health, and how to help clients change their behavior, cognitions, and affects are illustrated with case examples, client handouts, and detailed protocols. Psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, and counselors will find Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity indispensible in understanding and applying body image research findings and practice guidelines in the context of comprehensive state-of-the-art assessment and treatment approaches.
