The authors review the spectrum of eating problems and disorders, the related risk and protective factors, the models that have guided prevention efforts to date, the literature on the studies of prevention including their target audience, outcome, and the models that shaped the program, as well as suggestions for curriculum and program development and evaluation. The book concludes with a new prevention program based on the Feminist Ecological Developmental (FED) model. The 800-plus references highlight work done in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Switzerland, Norway, Spain, Italy, Israel, and Australia.
Intended for clinicians, professors, and researchers interested in the prevention of eating disorders from disciplines such as health, clinical, developmental, and community psychology; social work; medicine; and public health; this book is also an ideal text for advanced courses on eating disorders taught in departments of psychology, health, psychiatry, education, and dietetics.
